Family economics can have significant influence on the life outcomes of children. A study by the Economic Mobility Project found that four-fifths of children who were raised in very low income families never earned more than the median income over the course of their lives. A growing percentage of families in Sacramento County find themselves struggling to earn the income needed to support basic family and personal needs. More than one-sixth (17%) of families with children live below poverty, and at least 45% do not earn enough to be self-sufficient.
