Children’s HealthWatch seeks your support.  Since 1998, Children’s HealthWatch has brought tens of thousands of families’ experiences to life through rigorous research that transforms policies for reducing economic hardships and advancing health equity for infants and toddlers. Our work is grounded in the belief that everyday people are the foundation and source of policy transformation. Our work is democracy in action.

Our data has been at the center of major policy advancements from expanding tax credits for low- and moderate-income families, boosting nutrition assistance, and investing in affordable housing and eviction prevention programs – all of which have tangible impacts on the health of young children and their families in communities across the country.  The Children’s HealthWatch team are often the only child health experts at the table among advocacy partners and direct service providers. We bring a unique perspective, crystallizing the reasons our collective work matters for children and families through our research. We are team players, often working in coalition for policy change. We believe deeply in the power of the collaborative.

That’s why we cannot do this work without the financial support of donors like you who share our mission to advance research, transform policy, and promote equity. You make our work possible. 

As we look to our next 25 years, we continue this commitment to leverage our data in new ways to advance our mission. We believe that data without action risks squandering the potential of millions of children and families. Join us as we launch the Democratizing Our Data project, which will mark the next step in our organization’s evolution. With your generous giving, we will regularly share a series of Children’s HealthWatch Data Snapshots to rapidly deploy real-time data to support inform decisions among local, state and national policymakers, organizational leaders, and partner organizations. They will empower more people to advance Children’s HealthWatch research as a tool to transform policy and improve the health and development of our future.
