Improving economic mobility, one family at a time

April is Financial Capability Month, and that is prompting some interesting conversations about what it takes to build economic stability. LISC’s Seung Kim knows how challenging that can be. She's spent more than a decade helping low-income people improve their financial outlook and writes persuasively about how Financial Opportunity Centers are giving people the tools they need to succeed.

LISC announces encouraging economic gains at Financial Opportunity Centers

A study released today offers a rare, hopeful view of the economic outlook for some of the country's poorest residents. LISC researchers looked at data from 62 of its Financial Opportunity Centers across the country and found that low-income people who accessed a range of services focused on employment, income supports and financial management made significant progress. With the help of a financial coach, they were more likely to find and retain their jobs, increase their incomes and improve their credit scores than people who didn't participate in the bundled services. Many thanks to the JPMorgan Chase Foundation for supporting the preparation, publication, and dissemination of this report.

New LISC study: Employment and financial services help low-income people make progress

LISC researchers recently analyzed outcomes from 40,000 people who visited Financial Opportunity Centers all across the country as a way to improve their economic circumstances. The data show that those who took advantage of bundled services that focused on employment, income supports and financial management skills made significant, lasting progress—with incomes expanding by an encouraging 76 percent. Many thanks to the JPMorgan Chase Foundation for supporting the preparation, publication, and dissemination of this report.
