Year after year, EMPath makes significant and measurable impact on the lives of those we serve. The outstanding results of our Mobility Mentoring® platform have prompted the Center for the Developing Child at Harvard University, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Commission to Build a Healthy America, and federal, state, and municipal leaders to recognize Mobility Mentoring® as one of the most promising interventions addressing the inter-generational cycle of poverty.

EMPath has an organizational structure that integrates programs, research and evaluation, and advocacy in a constant feedback loop.

Beginning in February 2016, EMPath made the commitment to expand Mobility Mentoring® in all its housing programs to guide more Boston-based low income families across the economic divide, and develop stronger frameworks for shelter populations.

Intergenerational Mobility Project

The video, made in collaboration with the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University, profiles EMPath's Intergenerational Mobility Project. Families use the Bridge to Self-Sufficiency to plan for the future. When parents can align and prioritize goals, they can build a solid foundation for their children’s future and move across the economic divide.
