Join the Pascale Sykes Foundation, CNJG members, and more for a day-long event showcasing new research that demonstrates the results of the Whole Family Approach.

Are you passionate about improving the well-being of working, low-income families? Are you eager to see proof of what approaches work?

The success of the Whole Family Approach hinges on our recognition that families’ aspirations are multifaceted, and therefore, so should te services that are designed to support them. Understanding the various social determinants of health is essential to effectively work with ALICE (Assets Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) families to achieve their goals. Join us as we share the valuable insights our researchers and practitioners have acquired from this seven-year research effort that spans both urban and rural contexts.

The Pascale Sykes Foundation, Council of New Jersey Grantmakers, the Senator Walter Rand Institute for Public Affairs at Rutgers University-Camden, and the University of Pennsylvania are thrilled to bring you this new, long awaited research to shine a light on the impact of family-centered approaches in the communities we serve. Join us in creating a future where families define, create and live the futures they dream of!

Featured speakers will include:
Amy Castro Baker, Ph.D., MSW, Assistant Professor, University of Pennsylvania School of Social Policy & Practice
Ross Whiting, Ph.D., Director of Research and Evaluation, Senator Walter Rand Institute for Public Affairs at Rutgers University-Camden
Frances Sykes, President, Pascale Sykes Foundation
Heather Santoro, Connecting Families to Communities
Lisa Twomey, Child Connection Center
