WelcomeThe Center for Family Policy and Practice is a nonprofit advocacy organization that was founded in 1995 to incorporate the needs of low-income men of color into conversations about poverty solutions. Our work addresses systemic and structural barriers to economic security, with a particular focus on child support and social welfare policies.
We advocate for policies that would benefit every member of low-income families and communities.
