Save the date for the next RAISE Texas Summit, “The Roadmap to Financial Resiliency,” a two-day virtual event.
COVID-19 has disrupted the lives and financial security of lower-income families and individuals. Service providers report that rampant job losses have exacerbated the pre-pandemic challenges faced by the poor and communities of color. Educators and community-based organizations have shifted how they connect with students and clients, magnifying the digital divide. Young people and working adults have sought upskilling opportunities to join and remain in the workforce. Moreover, emergency savings that could have mitigated the impact of the economic shock have been exhausted or were never there to begin with. This is the reality for too many Texans. Without an infrastructure of opportunity to support them, their outlook and sense of resiliency are grim.
In the face of these challenges, however, we’ve seen communities step up to address the economic impact of COVID-19. The summit will highlight promising response models and explore three key stages to implementing solutions that break down barriers and build long-term financial resiliency for vulnerable populations.
- Stage 1: Achieving short-term financial stability.
- Stage 2: Achieving income stability.
- Stage 3: Crafting emergency savings accounts.
Thursday Nov. 5, 9 a.m.–noon
