2012 Assets Learning Conference

Reaching Financially Vulnerable Populations through Integrated Services

September 21, 2012 9:30 am - 10:45 am

Room: Delaware A

Over the past 10 years, government and nonprofit sectors have started to experiment with providing financial wellness-related programs as part of a strategy of coordinating access to multiple services to targeted populations. This strategy shows promise as it enables access to programs when demand for them is greatest. This session features research that explores the effect of service integration strategies – i.e., combining financial counseling and education or savings programs with traditional social services – on the financial well-being and behavior of low-income households.


 This session is designed exclusively for the Research Forum.
