FII and families from across the nation are building a movement to change the way our country perceives and invests in low-income families. As they work for economic inclusion and recognition of their efforts towards economic and social mobility, we use their data and stories as evidence to change the policies and practices that are barriers to their success.
Although families set their own goals and we cannot predict the exact outcomes our families will experience, we have learned that families consistently have significant gains in their financial position. For example, at enrollment, the average yearly income for an average FII family of four is $25,994/year or 104% of the federal poverty line. After two years, the average yearly income is $31,823/year or 127% of the poverty line.
