At USES, we believe that as families stabilize through access to increased resources, become more resilient, and build a diverse network of relationships, they and their children are more likely to develop the skills they need to succeed and will break the cycle of poverty. We have created a bold new model designed to equip children and their families with economic mobility and social capital. Our programs align to our renewed mission that leads to profound, “whole family” impact. As families stabilize and take advantage of opportunities for advancement, they are connecting to an inclusive community that is investing social capital and uniting for the success of all.
