WHAT WE DO
Provide state legislators, public officials and child advocates with the reliable data, policy recommendations and tools needed to advance sound policies that benefit West Virginia’s children and families.
A Board of Directors oversees the work of WV KIDS COUNT and the Data & Policy Committee guides indicator selection, and data collection and analysis of data for our projects.
The WV KIDS COUNT Strategic Plan is based on the following three pillars.
- Data: Provide the most trusted source of data about the well-being of West Virginia’s kids.
- Partnerships: Establish collaborative relationships with organizations that strive to make every kid count in West Virginia.
- Hope: Share information about West Virginia’s kids in a way that encourages others to take action on their behalf.
