A growing evidence base suggests that early childhood poverty, income, and employment might be a root cause of involvement with child protective services. As young children stand to benefit the most from early intervention, these findings imply that income relief might increase child safety as well.

After describing the historical trends in poverty, income, and employment, we will examine more closely the growing body of empirical and theoretical scientific literature and the specific policies and interventions that provide the scaffolding for universal maltreatment prevention.
