About Us

The Southern Institute on Children and Families works with federal, state and local leaders and businesses to tackle critical issues facing low-income children and families, and turns that knowledge into effective solutions that improve opportunities and change lives.

We focus on the South, but our reach is national. Our targeted efforts in the southern region allow us to improve public policies, identify promising practices and build public/private partnerships in the region where action is needed most. From there we take lessons learned to the rest of the nation, including direction of national multimillion-dollar initiatives consistent with our mission.

Our work has resulted in dramatic improvements for millions of low-income children and families across the country on a range of issues, including health care coverage, child care and early education and other policies that support working families.

Over the years, the Southern Institute on Children and Families has contributed to:

  • A reduction in the number of uninsured children in the United States by nearly 2 million since 1998.
  • Quality improvements in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) eligibility processes in more than half of the states in the nation.
  • Quality improvements in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) eligibility processes in more than half of the states in the nation.
