Why make poverty tolerable, when we can make it escapable?
As a nation, we have missed an opportunity to invest directly in the initiative and strength of low-income families working toward economic mobility. 75% of low-income families move above the federal poverty line within four years. Yet, 50% slip back under within five years. Under the current system, families struggle to build the necessary assets to weather the next crisis and aren't rewarded for their initiative in doing so. FII is changing this resource gap for low-income families by partnering with, learning from, and investing directly in families.
