Poverty makes it harder for children to succeed in school. Fortunately there are services that schools can deliver, beyond classroom instruction, to alleviate the effects of poverty. 

Join the DC Fiscal Policy Institute to learn about how DC can improve parent engagement, supports for homeless students, mental health, expanded learning, and wraparound services to help DC’s most vulnerable students succeed. 

 Featured speakers: 

  • Rebecca Brink, Children’s Law Center
  • Jamila Larson, Homeless Children’s Playtime Project
  • Maggie Riden, DC Alliance of Youth Advocates
  • Soumya Bhat, DC Fiscal Policy Institute
