Ascend brings the perspectives, strengths, and resilience of low-income families to inform programs and policies:
· Ascend invests in parent ambassadors;
· We engage family voices through nonpartisan focus groups and surveys;
· We develop publications, products, and tools that partners can use to inform and expand their work on two-generation approaches.
