Mission and Vision


The Family Independence Initiative is in the information business. We enable America to see the power and potential of low-income families, and enable them to come together and access the resources they need to thrive.

We seek to catalyze:

  • A marketplace of opportunity and investment for low-income families in the United States
  • A movement that transforms the stereotypes, practices, and policies that currently undermine families’ efforts to get ahead


The Family Independence Initiative envisions a future in which each person and family recognizes their self-determination and has access to the resources and community they need to thrive.
