This brief describes the well-being of children and families living in the five Choice Neighborhoods. It explores how families in the target developments used services provided at the time of the baseline survey. Services include home-based infant and parenting services, early childhood education, and programs addressing educational and health challenges for parents and children. The brief lays the groundwork to understand how Choice grantees should target services toward families who need them most. At the time of the baseline survey, at least half of families had taken advantage of at least one of the services offered.
