Abstract: 

The author of this report presents policy recommendations developed by the National Human Services Assembly and the National Collaboration for Youth for the 111th Congress toward child well-being. The recommendations are organized into the following areas: early childhood; education; afterschool and summer programs; child welfare system; physical health; juvenile justice and delinquency prevention; runaway and homeless youth; youth service; and youth employment. For each area, the authors provide national statistics and very specific policy recommendations.
