REVIEW:
The Annie E. Casey Foundation is a nonprofit organization that seeks to improve the lives of disadvantaged children in the New England area. The materials collected here would be of use to anyone who shares the same ideal. Visitors will find information about family development, juvenile detention, rebuilding communities, tools for rebuilding foster care and improving the welfare system, and much more. Included on the site is the online version of the 2000 KIDS COUNT Data Book and Online Database, an interactive database of state and national indicators of child well being. Users can generate custom graphs, maps, ranked lists, and state-by-state profiles.
