Building a Foundation for Family Economic Success

According to a new report from the Working Poor Families Project, the twenty-five nonprofits participating in the initiative have helped generate or preserve more than $2.5 billion in state investments in low-income working families. Prepared by South by North Strategies, the report, Building a Foundation for Family Economic Success (20 pages, PDF), describes the program's focus on policy change at the state level as well as its efforts to help low-income working families in several states obtain financial aid, boost their educational level and skills, access good jobs, and make ends meet. Established in 2002, the project was funded by the Annie E. Casey, Ford, Mott, and Joyce foundations.
