Sec. 12351. Findings and purpose

-STATUTE-

(a) Findings

Congress finds that -

(1) fundamental changes in the demographics and economics of

family life in the United States over the past 20 years have had

a profound effect on children and their parents;

(2) since 1966, the number of women working outside the home

has increased by 92 percent and the number of two earner families

has increased by over 50 percent;

(3) 61 percent of the children born today will live in a

single-parent family before reaching the age of 20, with one out

of every three single female heads of households living on income

below the Federal poverty level;

(4) one out of every four children under the age of 6 in the

United States currently lives below the Federal poverty level;

(5) over the past 10 years, parents have increasingly come

together with other parents to organize family resource and

support programs that promote healthy child development and

increase parental competency, particularly families at risk; and

(6) Federal investment in promoting the development of family

resource and support programs will reap long-term benefits for

individual families and the nation as a whole.

(b) Purpose

It is the purpose of this part (!1) to -

(1) stimulate the development and expansion of family resource

and support programs that are prevention oriented;

(2) encourage early intervention of such programs with families

to ameliorate problem situations before such situations become

crises; and

(3) assist parents in enhancing their children's development to

ensure that their children enter school prepared and ready to

learn.

As used in this part, the term "family resource and support

(3) the creation of supportive networks to enhance the

childrearing capacity of parents and assist in compensating for

the increased social isolation and vulnerability of families.

Sec. 12371. Findings

-STATUTE-

(a) Findings

The Congress finds that -

(1) children and youth are inherently our most valuable

resource and their welfare, protection, healthy development, and

positive role in society are essential to the Nation;

(2) children and youth deserve love, respect, and guidance, as

well as good health, shelter, food, education, productive work,

and preparation for responsible participation in community life;

(3) an increasing opportunity for children and youth to

participate in the decisions that affect their lives is

essential;

(4) the family is the primary caregiver and the source of

social learning which must be supported and strengthened, but

when families are unable to ensure the satisfaction of the needs

of children and youth, it is society's responsibility to assist

them;

(5) at a minimum, all children and youth need and deserve

access to -

(A) the best possible physical and mental health;

(B) adequate and safe physical shelter;

(C) the highest quality of educational opportunity;

(D) effective training, apprenticeships, opportunities for

community service, and productive employment;

(E) the widest range of civic, cultural, and recreational

activities which recognize young Americans as resources and

promote self-esteem and a stake in their communities;

(F) comprehensive community services which are efficient,

coordinated, and readily available; and

(G) genuine participation in decisions concerning the

planning and managing of their lives; and

(6) there is a great need for a comprehensive national policy

with respect to young individuals, designed to engage Federal,

State, and local government agencies, youth organizations, and

other voluntary organizations.

(b) Statement of policy

It is the policy of the Congress that the Federal Government

should work jointly with the States and their citizens to develop

recommendations and plans for action to meet the challenge and

needs of young individuals.
