Join Children's HealthWatch, headquartered at Boston Medical Center, as they release findings from their newest report, "Pathways to Stable Homes" at a forum hosted by the Boston Foundation. This new, innovative research documents the synergistic combination of policies designed to ensure that working families in each low-income county of Massachusetts are able to pay for rent without sacrificing basic needs.

As part of the presentation, Children's HealthWatch will introduce policies that are complementary to current efforts for more affordable homes, but not traditionally considered pathways to housing stability, like childcare and working family tax credits, which are vital programs for improving families' ability to pay rent. Children's HealthWatch researchers will present their findings and policy recommendations. Following the presentation, a panel of diverse stakeholders will react to the research presented and share insights based on their expertise.

Panel Moderator: Renee Boynton-Jarrett, MD, ScD, Pediatrician, Boston Medical Center; Founder, Vital Village Network
