Families Stand Together
Feeling Secure in Tough Times
In today's economic climate, approximately two out of three middle class families are at high risk of sustaining or losing their economic security. Moreover, increases in job loss and income cuts have made families struggle with basic costs like housing, medical care, transportation, food, clothing and childcare. Too often, parents are being forced to make difficult decisions that affect their children's well-being. In this kind of environment, even basic family activities like talking, playing, and spending time together can easily be overlooked.
To help families cope with these challenging economic times, Sesame Street presents Families Stand Together an outreach initiative to help families talk, come together, and reach out for support.
