Community Impact

The struggles of those living in the communities within our footprint are interconnected, and we’re focused on addressing them holistically. Financial instability has a substantiated impact on the health and longevity of low-income individuals and can negatively effect the long-term education success of children and adults. Improved financial well-being leads to stronger, healthier households. A healthier household—economically and physically—directly correlates to reduced absenteeism and higher graduation rates. When the root causes of these problems are addressed as opposed to simply the end result of poverty, we can work to prevent recidivism and start to see long term success among these populations.
