Administration for Native Americans
The Administration for Native Americans (ANA) promotes the goal of social and economic self-sufficiency of American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and other Native American Pacific Islanders, including Native Samoans. Self-sufficiency is that level of development at which a Native American community can control and internally generate resources to provide for the needs of its members and meet its own economic and social goals. Social and economic underdevelopment is the paramount obstacle to the self-sufficiency of Native American communities and families.
Administration on Developmental Disabilities
The Administration on Developmental Disabilities grants support programs that protect the rights and promote the self-sufficiency of Americans with developmental disabilities and their families. Funds help state governments, local communities, and the private sector to integrate these people socially and economically into mainstream society.
Children's Bureau
The Bureau provides grants to states, tribes and communities to operate a range of child welfare services including child protective services (child abuse and neglect), family preservation and support, foster care, adoption assistance and independent living.

Children, Youth and Families at Risk 2000

The Problem
  • Many Georgia children are living in at-risk environments. Georgia ranks 42nd in overall child well-being, based on 10 indicators tracked by Kids Count. Indicators include low-birthweight babies, teen deaths, births to teen parents, juvenile violent crime, and percent of children in poverty.
  • At 20%, Georgia's child poverty rate is above the national average..
  • Many Georgia children are not succeeding in school. At least 47% of 4th graders are not reaching a basic level of achievement in mathematics, and 51% of 8th graders are scoring below a basic level in science. 14% of Georgia teens drop out of high school each year.
Research-based Solutions
  • Programming that emphasizes positive youth development builds resiliency in at-risk children and youth.
  • The most effective interventions target children at young ages and provide long-term support and education.
  • Effective programming for children at risk intentionally involves their families at all levels.
Extensionís Role
  • Conduct educational programs for parents, helping them to acquire skills in positive parenting.

The report uses 13 indicators of health and safety for quality child care, such as staff training, child:staff ratio, immunizations, emergency planning, etc, and examines existing evidence to support how these 13 indicators protect children from harm. The report, a collaboration with the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, was prepared by the National Resource Center for Health and Safety in Child Care at the University of Colorado and written by Richard Fiene, Pennsylvania State University.

    I Want to Help!
    WE NEED YOU! Children don't vote and can't get help on their own. The Georgia Children's Agenda was begun in 1993 to convene a spectrum of individuals and organizations in influencing the public policy choices made by our elected officials to produce positive change for Georgia's children and their families. The ultimate goal of the Children's Agenda is to transform every Georgia community into a safe and healthy place for children and youth. Research shows that states that invest in children tend to have higher quality jobs and more competitive businesses. If Georgia is to thrive, its children must be guaranteed the educational opportunities they need to fulfill their potential, access to quality health care, a safe environment, and secure homes with thriving families. The Georgia Children's Agenda reflects this belief and is intended to serve as a catalyst for action by spurring dialogue, debate and consensus at both the state and community levels. The 2001 Georgia Children's Agenda is the product of a series of ten focus groups convened throughout the state and a balloting process that involved over 200 state and local organizations and 600 individual voters. Broad-based support is essential to the success of the Children's Agenda. Add your voice today! Call or write your state representative and senator and tell them that you support the Children's Agenda.

    Youth At Risk Specialist, Extension Service, USDA
    The Cooperative Extension System (CES), ES-USDA, and the National 4-H Council have established a national Children, Youth, and Family (CYF) NETWORK consisting of four National Networks focussing on Child Care, Collaborations, Science and Technology, and Family Resiliency; and a national distributed information infrastructure. The CYF NETWORK consolidates program and technology resources and, through the electronic infrastructure, expedites nationwide access to information and education. The CYF NETWORK assists the Cooperative Extension System nationwide in accomplishing its mission to marshal resources of the land-grant universities and CES to collaborate with other organizations to develop and deliver educational programs that equip limited resource families and youth who are at risk for not meeting basic human needs, to lead positive, productive, contributing lives. The CYF NETWORK is not centered in Washington or in individual states. Each Network includes faculty with diverse experiences and skills from 4-H Youth Development, Home Economics, Community Development, Communications Technology, and other university departments from at least nine land-grant universities. The Networks allow states to reallocate resources and concentrate development money and staff time in one or two areas in which they have the most expertise. Fewer staff will be developing programs, more staff can devote time to working directly with youth and families in their communities. Services of the CYF NETWORK will be concentrated on 95 ES-USDA funded Youth At Risk (YAR) local projects and simultaneously be available to all states and counties.
