Financial Empowerment

As many as one-third of working Americans do not earn enough money to meet their basic needs. Wages have not kept pace with the rising cost of housing, healthcare and education. Currently, 40 million Americans are working in low-paying jobs without basic health and retirement benefits. These families are walking a financial tightrope, unable to save for college, a home, or retirement.

Our Goal

Increase the financial mobility and socioeconomic status of individuals and families.

Our Strategies

  • Providing the financial education and resources
  • Providing career training and job placement resources.
  • Providing affordable housing and/or transitional housing with education and support to move into affordable housing.
  • Increase the awareness of and enrollment in available benefits (e.g.SNAP) and income supports to improve financial stability.
