Blog: Building Your Own Safety Net: Developing wealth, financial independence, and social capital in high-poverty communities

Overview

The Self-Sufficiency Series from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services profiles local programs from across the country that are implementing “Principles of Economic Mobility” contained in President Trump’s Executive Order on Reducing Poverty in America by Promoting Opportunity and Economic Mobility.
