Nearly on quarter of children in the U.S. are living in immigrant families. Most of those children – about 90% of the young children – are U.S. citizens. Right now, children in immigrant families face a range of unique risks: parental and family separation due to deportation; threats to their mental and physical health, including the effects of toxic stress; deteriorating economic security due to job loss of caregivers; and reduced access to health and safety net program due to fear or lack of accurate eligibility information. Almost all early childhood funders are “immigrant funders” whether they realize it or not, because our future rests on the success of these children. ECFC has partnered with Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees and others to raise the visibility of these issues and help grantmakers respond.
