Upcoming Event

Join Us September 28th

Moving forward out of poverty takes strategy. Roadblocks arise, and none steeper than the benefits cliffs that can occur when a family or individual begins to increase their income and see an abrupt drop in safety net benefits like food stamps, cash assistance, and childcare vouchers. Often, the dollar value of their income increase doesn’t cover the sharp decline of their state and federal benefits. This can send families spiraling – and possibly back into poverty as it's too expensive to make more money.

Join us for a panel discussing this experience – and what the human services field can do through coaching and advocacy to make a change.
