Area of FocusHEALTH & FAMILY
GKFF’s work in this area attempts to reverse the generational cycle of poverty, especially for very young children and their families, through programs focused on pre-pregnancy and family health care, teen pregnancy prevention and alternatives to incarceration for mothers who have committed low-level offenses.
“Children bear no responsibility for the circumstance of their birth and are often the most impacted by poor health outcomes in their families, limiting their opportunity to escape from intergenerational poverty. That is morally offensive.”
— George B. Kaiser
The best way for young children to succeed is through a strong and healthy beginning. GKFF partners with nonprofit organizations to provide a level playing field, ensure access to necessary services and alleviate the symptoms of poverty, including food, clothing and shelter insecurity.
