Our Life Guides Program

Life Guides lets families leave poverty behind! A long term wrap around approach for families with at least one child 0-3 gives your dollar the best possible return on your investment to fundamentally make a change in a family’s life! 35% of families in Life Guides for 5+ years no longer require federal or state assistance! *Life Guides is about mindset! The difference between a middle class family and a poverty family is time frame. The Life Guide works with families to take away the need for immediate decisions on food, housing, transportation, jobs, child care and health care. It enables a longer term decision process – something you take for granted. How often is a decision based on today or tomorrow a good decision?
