A new resource entitled Pathways to the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect is available through the Pathways Mapping Initiative at Pathways to Outcomes. This site holds a wealth of findings to assist community coalitions, providers of support services, funders, and policymakers with improving the lives of children and families living in America’s at-risk neighborhoods. Included is a broad collection of information about what works in social programs and policies to achieve desired results, including increased rates of children ready for school and higher numbers of economically successful families. The Pathways Mapping Initiative draws from and builds upon a larger body of knowledge about what is working in other communities including best practices, theory of change, indicators of progress and successful benchmarks.
Other Pathway resources available include Pathway to Children Ready for School and Succeeding at Third Grade and Pathway to Successful Young Adulthood.
