Public Policies to Support Healthy Children and Families

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

Advocating for the Health of All Families

For our nation to reach its full potential, every child must be able to lead the healthiest, most successful life possible. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Healthy Children and Families portfolio supports many grantees advocating for policies covering economic and workplace supports, food and nutrition, early childhood education and access, and safety net supports. We provided expert advisement to RWJF on understanding grantee approaches to advocacy. We also provided research on current trends in policy reform and trainings in racial equity for policy advocacy.

We work to defend families against attacks on anti-poverty policies and supports that they need to survive.
