California’s children still struggle in poverty, new report says
Los Angeles Daily News

California’s children are more likely to have health care coverage, avoid teen pregnancy and live until adulthood, but many remain in poverty or with parents who lack secure jobs, according to a report released today.

That mixed assessment of the well-being of California’s youth means the Golden State ranks poorly when it comes to making programs more accessible to help children live better, said authors of a report for the Annie E. Casey Foundation. The private philanthropy based in Baltimore makes grants to respond to children’s poverty among other issues.
