Working Family Success Network Community College

The Working Family Success Network (formerly Centers for Working Families or CWF) is working nationally to help low-income families achieve financial stability. The Working Family Success Network strategy offers support services to help lower-income people get work and improve their financial security. Under this strategy, individuals receive a coordinated set of three key services. This strategy provides an integrated services approach, through the bundling and sequencing of complementary services and supports in the three key areas:

  1. Financial coaching and education
  2. Employment
  3. Improved access to public benefits

The approach stresses a focus not just on such measures as participation rates, but also on key outcomes, which include job placement and retention, family income, credit score improvement and completion rates for college degrees or training programs.
