ABOUT INVEST IN TOMORROW
Invest in Tomorrow is an initiative undertaken by Maine organizations, businesses, and individuals to cut Maine's child poverty rate in half over the next ten years as a step toward eradicating child poverty in a generation.

REPORT & 2019 GOALS
Maine's child poverty problem and the challenges it poses to our families, communities, and institutions impact all of us.
Based on data and input from stakeholders, community members and families struggling to make ends meet, stakeholders have identified key areas that we need to address to increase economic security and opportunity in Maine. Read our Report and 2019 policy priorities to learn more.
MEASUREMENTS of SECURITY & OPPORTUNITY
How is Maine doing when it comes to economic security and opportunity for children and families? We are tracking how families are faring, and the progress we make to improve the economic well-being of families. We aim to be accountable to the data and move Maine in the right direction on indicators related to basic needs and employment opportunity. Each year, we will publish an update to the data dashboard.
The 2019 dashboard is now available.
