Zero to Three has released a few resources to showcase how cross-system work in several states has improved the access and quality of support for families that often lack the resources (such as mental health support, temporary assistance, etc) that are often more accessible for high-income families. See excerpt below:
Cross-system work can result in significant improvements in how government supports families. By working collaboratively, states have increased the number of children and families served by leveraging funding; improved the quality of services across sectors; strengthened referral pathways so more children and families receive the services they need; and met the needs of parents and children at the same time.
