Families who are experiencing homelessness face real challenges, when they try to achieve financial security and build a safety net. They may have few assets and poor credit. Traditional banks may have denied service to families who lack a mailing address or can’t meet minimum deposit and balance requirements.
Stable finances are key to the brighter futures we seek for the families we serve.
We created our Financial Literacy Program to introduce families to core concepts of financial security and asset building, helping them to gain and maintain economic independence over the long-term.
Our Program Model
Our Shelter-based program introduces families to core concepts. We then extend hands-on support for up to 24 months to families, who successfully complete our Shelter program and enroll in Bridges AfterCare.
Our ultimate goal is to give families the financial tools and knowledge that they need to put homelessness behind them, forever.
