our core values represent what we believe in,
and how we approach everything we do.
In the last year, the Prosperity team helped 5,443 clients access imperative financial and health services. We helped families move toward comprehensive household wellness by offering non-predatory financial products, financial coaching, free tax preparation, benefits enrollment, healthcare access, and more.
In the last year, we enrolled 268 participants in our two-generation leadership development programs. Participants learned about effective leadership, policy advocacy, project design, and how to affect social change in their communities. They represented several neighborhoods in Miami-Dade County.
In the last year, we convened over 700 residents through our summits and gatherings. We advocated for local, state, and national anti-poverty policies through direct actions, communications efforts and community convenings. Our multi-stakeholder partnerships enabled us to develop several reports and tools that facilitated the engagement of residents and organizations in policy advocacy. We weaved networks that increased collaboration and strengthened the social justice movement in South Florida.
