Collaborative Action for Child Equity (CACE)
The mission of CACE is to reduce disparities in health, wellbeing and school readiness for every child age 0-5 years, in order to advance health equity.
TCC engages 13 partner states across HHS Region IV and the CDC REHDAI network to:
- Evaluate the extent to which a culturally-centered, peer-mediated parenting leadership program, Smart & Secure Children (SSC) impacts healthy child development; and
- Evaluate how state and local policies ensure that every child receives quality parenting and early child development through supportive programs and public service delivery systems with community participation in decision-making.
- Further, CACE strives to ensure that parents are actively engaged in informing and influencing early childhood policy formation and program implementation.
