Fighting Intergenerational Poverty Requires a Human-centered Approach

The Integrated Community Action Now or "ICAN" initiative supports families experiencing intergenerational poverty. Each family is assigned a Resource Integration Coach (RIC) to facilitate connections with over 200 strategic partners and community resources to increase the economic well-being and self-determination of children.

Our ICAN Model increases the health and well-being of children who are experiencing intergenerational poverty. We also decrease barriers to family economic stability for adults experiencing Intergenerational Poverty.
