It’s not enough to have a decent, affordable home. If we are to truly revitalize low-income communities we need to connect families with opportunities to stabilize their financial outlook. They need to build marketable job skills and get help with job placement. They need to gain the financial literacy that help them to more effectively manage their income, reduce their debt and build their assets. Residents can lay the groundwork for a more prosperous future when armed with the right coaching, counseling and financial tools. And in doing so, they can help build a stronger Sustainable Community.
