Crittenton Women's Union is now EMPath

The Intergenerational Mobility Project
Made in collaboration with the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University, this video profiles the Intergenerational Mobility Project and its use of a coaching framework to strengthen families’ ability to navigate the complexities of poverty. Drawing on parents’ desire to advocate for their children and be case managers of their own lives, mentors and families use the Bridge to Self-Sufficiency® to plan for the future. When parents can align and prioritize goals for their family’s stability, well-being, education, finances, and career, they build a solid foundation for their children’s future and move across the economic divide.
Economic Mobility Exchange
A membership-based community of organizations and government agencies that want to learn about EMPath's Mobility Mentoring® model, improve their own practices, and exchange ideas about ways to help families and individuals reach self-sufficiency.
