Family Economic Success
There is a strong correlation between, employment, finances, and health as it relates to the well-being of the family. Families can thrive in communities when they are doing well in all three areas mentioned above. Having a sufficient amount of income that will allow them to have money left over with the ability to save is considered economic success. When parents are doing well, the children are doing well and when the family is doing well so is the community. Working families who are barely or not meeting the needs of their monthly living expenses are considered the working poor. Some working poor families lack financial knowledge to better handle their money, financial resources, education, and low employment skills to obtain livable wage jobs. This unfortunately put families in a difficult position resulting in eviction, unstable housing, and children performing poorly in school, exposure to unsafe environments, depression and lack of productivity.
