Over half of the households we serve live below the federal poverty level – with 44% earning less than $15,000 a year. These families often struggle to find a home and a job, keep food on the table, and stay in good health. NEW helps families get stable by providing affordable housing, health and safety, and other specialized services.
Once a family has achieved a level of economic security, Gaining Knowledge is the next step towards building a more secure future. NEW offers a range of educational programs for adults, teens and children to help families gain knowledge and develop confidence.
At NEW, we believe that families can transition out of poverty by building, protecting and growing their educational, financial and personal assets — creating true wealth for themselves and their loved ones.
