When more families are striving, communities are thriving. Donating to Economic Stability means you help families build wealth through job training, stable housing, financial education and improved health costs.

What We're Up Against

We know that children who grow up in poverty have a 4% chance of moving into the middle class.
There are more than 51,000 young adults in Greater Atlanta who are locked out of the economy — not working and not in school.

1 in 3 working mothers in Georgia have had to quit a job, school or work-training program because of lack of childcare.

Here's What We're Doing

With a clear understanding of the roles and resources that each sector brings to the table, we are investing in five strategies that offer the highest potential to improve economic stability in communities with low child well-being scores.

Secure Housing and Basic Needs

Ensure families have stable housing, food security and reliable transportation to move from crisis to financial security.

Close the Skills Gap

Create easy access to job readiness programs, increase opportunities for hands-on work experience, and provide financial support to secure credentials in high demand careers for low-wage workers and youth in neighborhoods of low child well-being.

Provide Access to Childcare and Afterschool

Increase access to quality early learning and youth enrichment programs that are flexible, affordable and accommodate parents’ work and job training schedules.

Build Wealth

Provide support so that families build financial literacy skills, improve credit scores, access financial products and attain assets that create economic mobility for themselves and the next generation.

Manage Health

Provide equitable access to health services so that individuals are better able to manage their health, work consistently and live independently.
