Connecting you with job leads
Whereas traditional approaches to breaking the cycle of poverty emphasized increasing income, recent research has proven that income is necessary but an insufficient solution to solve poverty. Instead, assets—concrete and tangible resources like a home, savings, an education or a business—must accompany income in order to help families move up the economic ladder. CWF coaches are here to guide you on the journey and will assist you in savings, budgeting, credit repair, and financial investment options!
