“It’s hard to imagine government, as polarized as it is, agreeing on anything that might help.

The report is the result of a yearlong effort called the Convergence Collaborative on Supports for Working Families.

The piece also included some powerful quotes from participants, Lina Guzman Christopher Towner, and Sarah Rittling on their experience with the Collaborative!
