Healthier Together: Poverty

Achieving Financial Stability and Prosperity 

Financial stability means that families have enough in their budgets for safe housing, nutritious food, weather-appropriate clothing and other small items that help children stay healthy. To help West Philadelphia families and the community-at-large to achieve financial stability and continue to build prosperity, Healthier Together supports efforts that help to grow small businesses as well as household budgets, including advising for minority- and women-owned businesses, expanded workforce development opportunities, and increased access to no-cost financial counseling, legal services, and tax prep.
