Research Brief: Building Wealth and Health Network Preliminary Outcomes

Overview

The Building Wealth and Health Network is an opportunity for parents and caregivers of young children to increase their income and savings, improve health and wellbeing, shape their own futures, and to do so in a community of their peers. The Network does this through three main components: Financial Self Empowerment Classes, Matched Savings Accounts, and Surveys.

Post-program outcomes indicate positive impacts on food security, self-rated health, depression, employment, and savings account participation.
