Hispanic Children & Families

Hispanics represent the largest, and one of the fastest-growing, racial/ethnic minority population groups in the U.S. With one in four children in the U.S. now Hispanic—and roughly one-third of Hispanic children living in poverty—the well-being of this community will have profound implications for the future workforce, economy, and prospects of our nation.

To help programs and policy better serve low-income Hispanic children and families, the National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families (Center) provides research and capacity building activities across three areas:

The Center is both policy and program driven, and is dedicated to providing timely research findings, tools, and scholar opportunities aimed at improving the lives of low-income Hispanic children and families. Child Trends and Abt Associates—together with university partners—launched the Center in 2013 with a five-year cooperative agreement from the Office of Planning, Research & Evaluation, an office of the Administration for Children & Families in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
