    To address the unmet needs of disadvantaged children, the Children and Youth program supports services aimed at promoting healthy development of young children, to prevent later problems by intervening early in a problem cycle, when services are less costly and may have a greater chance for success. Despite challenges, the program has been a catalyst for change in encouraging government investment in evidence-based prevention and early intervention programs, promoting evidence-based practice among service providers, and engaging the academic sector in policy-oriented research. The report includes strategies for future directions.
