May 9, 2013

The YEF Institute has published a new report highlighting promising city efforts to improve the lives of children, youth and families in communities with populations below 75,000.  Municipal Leadership for Children and Families in Small and Mid-Sized Cities provides a rich array of strategies shared by local officials representing more than 40 cities and towns across the country.  

The report contains in-depth case studies of comprehensive family strengthening efforts in Rapid City, S.D., and Manchester, Conn.  It also includes a set of shorter city practices that highlight local action in areas such as early childhood development, education, health and safety, family economic success, neighborhood revitalization, and youth and community engagement.
