Excellent New Series on Infants in Poverty on Michigan Radio

Jennifer Guerra and Dustin Dwyer of Michigan Radio have started a new, 3-year series called the State of Opportunity.  With funding support from the WK Kellogg Foundation, this series is looking at the effects of poverty on infants, toddlers, very young children and families.  They are following a young single mother from Highland Park, with a toddler and a baby on the way.
