The Recession Generation: New Report from the Coalition on Human Needs

From the Coalition on Human Needs (


The Center on Human Needs recently released a new report called The Recession Generation: Preventing Long-Term Damage from Child Poverty and Young Adult Joblessness.


Without immediate action, there is growing evidence that the effects of the Great Recession will linger for years, causing lasting damage to a generation of children and young adults, according to this new report. The report cites research findings and interviews with service providers and low-income people about the hazards of growing up or coming of age in poverty and during hard times. The report also includes descriptions of programs that help, and policy recommendations to reduce the damage from the Great Recession.
