The Promise is focused on removing barriers to secure, stabilize, and grow income.
Income is a foundational and immediate challenge for people experiencing poverty. Providing people with more access to income helps maintain stability and allows people to meet basic needs like paying rent, buying food, or accessing the healthcare system.
Income stability is a key factor in not only getting above the poverty line, but staying above it. The more we remove barriers to employment in our city, the more we’ll all thrive, with a stronger workforce, safer communities, and fewer people in crisis.
