WEBINAR Financial Hope Reduces Stress and Improves Health of Mothers

Financial Hope Collaborative Improves Health of Mothers
The Financial Hope Collaborative and its Financial Success Program, housed at Creighton University in Omaha, has been teaching and coaching low income families since 2006, focusing on single mothers since 2009. The curriculum includes repairing credit reports, saving for emergencies, and tracking expenses. Published outcomes from a formal pilot study included increased income, and physical activity, decreased BMI, and significantly increased hopefulness and quality of life measures. A large clinical trial funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is underway.
