Fighting for a strong start for every Pennsylvania child

Senator Casey believes that all children deserve a strong start in life, and the economic health of our Nation rests upon how well we help prepare our children for success. In the 21st century, it is time that we give our children a fair shot to achieve the future they deserve. That's what his Five Freedoms for America's Children agenda is about: securing for our kids the Freedom to be Healthy, Freedom to be Economically Secure, Freedom to Learn, Freedom from Hunger and the Freedom to be Safe from Harm.

By laying a solid foundation that includes health, economic security, education, nutrition, and safety from the day they are born, we can ensure all children can grow to their full potential. As Chairman of the HELP Committee's Subcommittee on Children and Families and a member of the Committee on Finance, Senator Casey is fighting each day to ensure that children’s needs are being considered in policymaking at every level.
