CDF is the foremost national proponent of policies
and programs that provide children with the
resources they need to succeed.
CDF advocates for policies that will lift children out of
poverty; protect them from abuse and neglect; and ensure
their access to health care, quality education, and
a moral and spiritual foundation.
