The New Profit community mourns the loss of our dear friend and colleague, Chris Herron, who passed away after a courageous battle with cancer on March 12, 2017. Chris' passion for social justice, his generous, collaborative spirit, and his sharp intellect and sense of humor were evident in all the work he did and the life he led. In his own, quiet way, he touched so many of us and left an enduring mark on our community.

#AdvanceEquity: Family Independence Initiative (FII)

Posted by Admin on Aug 4, 2016 11:32:31 AM


The Family Independence Initiative’s new model for fighting poverty harnesses the power of families working together to find solutions that meet their needs. FII creates spaces for families from similar backgrounds and experiences to organize and come together to overcome economic hurdles, from earning high school diplomas, to finding new jobs or opening their own small business. FII families report on their monthly progress and FII uses that data to identify what’s working and invest in initiatives that help families lead more economically secure lives.

The Family Independence Initiative (FII) does away with the traditional top-down approach to helping people struggling with poverty. Rather than promoting a new program, service or intervention, our model sees families as the change agents, and we invest in them as well as the solutions they discover to overcome poverty.
