THE GOAL: MORE THRIVING FAMILIES AND ADULTS IN OUR LOCAL COMMUNITIES
What would it look like for families and adults to THRIVE?
Hardworking individuals (ALICE families) will have their basic needs met, get better jobs earning enough money to support themselves and their families, increase their ability to save money, build assets and have access to healthcare. Ultimately, breaking the cycle of generational poverty and realizing long-term stability.
Life-Changing Strategies at work:
- The THRIVE Network, a network helping those that are working, yet living paycheck to paycheck – on the edge of poverty and without savings in case of emergency. The THRIVE Network provides one-on-one coaching and support to help families to increase income, build savings and acquire assets.
- Safety Net & Crisis Supports, providing integrated support for safety net services including utility assistance
- Covering Kids and Families, partner outreach providing free help to families to enroll in and understand their health insurance options to ensure every family has access to healthcare which is vital to their long-term financial stability.
