On Track with Lifetrack Spring 2016

As Minnesota’s winter season invokes reflection and solitude, our coming spring harkens action and inclusion. 2015 left us with much to reflect on. Minnesota’s families, while increasingly diverse, are navigating very common challenges with entrenched disparities in income, employment, education and health. These disparities fall hardest on individuals of color, new Americans and families trapped in generational poverty.
This On Track shares stories of bold action and the power of inclusion in changing the lives of children and families. Each of the individuals and resources you’ll read about are essential to Lifetrack’s enduring commitments:
Ending disparities in education by getting every at-risk child off to the best possible start through quality early childhood services, targeted home visiting and parenting education in the community and in the workplace.
Ending disparities in income and employment through substantive employment services and worklife navigation support for at-risk, highly discouraged or displaced job seekers, positioning every job seeker for opportunities to advance within industries willing to invest in their success.
