Income provides economic resources that shape decisions about housing, education, childcare, food, medical care and more. Poverty is a well-documented risk factor for negative health outcomes. Wealth — the accumulation of savings and assets — helps cushion and protect us in times of economic distress.
Housing is typically a family's greatest expenditure, and, for homeowners, their most significant source of wealth, so we support projects focused on housing and homelessness. Access to reliable housing and homeownership has the ability to lay the groundwork for future stability and health. Without financial worry and housing concerns, families and individuals can focus on what matters, leading full and healthy lives.
