NEW RESOURCE: Family-Friendly Policy Scan



"Family-friendly policies can take many different forms - they can be specific to an organization, such as paid parental leave, or pieces of legislation that apply to all residents. Prioritizing family-friendly policies and initiatives are important for improving childhood outcomes, decreasing stress among working parents, and enhancing overall well being within communities. This report highlights just a few of the many local-level family-friendly policies and initiatives throughout Colorado. By focusing on a diverse range of projects, spanning from informal community efforts to specific ordinances, this report is meant to serve as a resource for other communities in Colorado trying to prioritize family-friendly efforts."
