This brief describes two conceptual frameworks that have the potential to expand our understanding of programs that aim to meet the needs of low-income parents and children through intentionally combined activities and approaches. It is geared particularly to program administrators and researchers who are interested in the services that could be involved in these approaches, how these services relate to mutually reinforcing outcomes for parents and children, and strategies for effectively delivering and coordinating services across programs and agencies.
