Many State Children Live In Poverty

A new report indicates that more than a quarter of Rhode Island's children under the age of five lived in poverty in 2013.  The report from Rhode Island Kids Count also shows that more than 13-hundred children experienced neglect or abuse during the year.  Kids Count Executive Director Elizabeth Burke Bryant says adverse experiences during early mental and physical development can have lasting, negative effects on kids.  Burke Bryant says investing in healthy development early in life will pay dividends in the state for years to come.
