All families need social and emotional stability before they can get on solid economic footing. Safety-net service providers are crucial to helping individuals and families move beyond poverty to achieve self-sufficiency.
We support integrating healthy marriage and relationship skills into existing service delivery systems as part of a comprehensive, culturally appropriate, family-centered approach to achieving self-sufficiency.
Examples of safety-net service providers include:
- Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
- Child support enforcement
- Head Start
- Child welfare
- Workforce development
- Medical and mental health services
