There is no singular path to economic security for everyone, particularly for vulnerable populations such as those who are unemployed, underemployed, homeless, or at imminent risk of homelessness.
Programs that work with participants to build assets as well as personal and financial skills should be designed with this tenet in mind. In order to be effective, asset building programs must empower individuals and families to create their own unique and realistic paths to economic security instead of prescribing a “one size fits all” model.
HHCS Asset Building programs appreciate unique financial challenges, adapt to varied circumstances, and allow for individual financial goals. This kind of adaptive approach is essential in creating lasting positive change.
