Strong Families, Strong Maryland is a resource guide designed to help connect organizations that offer expertise and policy analysis with the people who are seeking information. It includes organizations that work to improve the lives of families and their children, their missions, contact information, and organizational policy priorities for 2015. It is your guide to the most important issues affecting Maryland’s children and families today and to the experts who can answer your questions

The lives of Maryland’s children and families are shaped in no small part by Maryland laws and regulations. Education, access to health care, civil rights and equal opportunity, tax policy, transportation, and work are just some of the many policy areas that can significantly affect the well-being of children and families. With such a wide range of issues, it can be difficult for the media, policy makers, advocates and others to find the experts that can help them to understand the issues affecting children and families or to identify the top policy priorities for improving their lives.

We hope that you find it useful and we encourage you to reach out to the organizations included here for additional information.
