How We Work

The Southern Institute on Children and Families is a non-profit, public policy organization established in 1990 that improves the well-being of low-income families and children. We work with local, state and federal policymakers and administrators, community leaders, advocacy organizations, foundations and businesses to develop and implement action strategies that increase the likelihood that low-income families can meet the basic needs of their children while building resources that result in greater opportunities for brighter futures. The Southern Institute conducts local, state, regional and national projects and initiatives consistent with our mission, with a special focus on 17 southern states and the District of Columbia.

This section of the Southern Institute’s Web site is organized around the five focus areas of our work, each of which comprises a key component of our overall effort to improve opportunities for children and families across the nation.
