Supporting families and children on their journey to economic mobility
“Improving a poor family’s financial status will positively affect the children’s health and well-being, and if that can be achieved in a healthcare setting that’s what we should be doing.”
“Really great experience, everyone was friendly and willing to help.”
“That's why I think I trust you because I know the clinic wouldn't have anybody here that's not legit.”
"And then the financial coaching, I appreciate it. It's a matter of just being able to build for a future."
“Financial coaching has helped me a lot because I've gotten a lot of help with diapers, money management, stress management.”
"The tax preparer actually showed me what she was doing... So, if you guys weren't around to do my taxes again, I could definitely do it on my own."
With your help, we've returned over $14 million to more than 6,000 families who need it most!
Stories from the Clients
"StreetCred has helped me in so many ways and that was a big thing for me.
It's where I met Stephanie and she really helped me achieve my goals and sponsored me a lot.
I've also met a lot of people through this platform, and I want to help them so that they have access to adequate resources.
I always wished I had a credit card. Now I use it for everything I buy, travel for free, and even cash back on my credit card.
This program definitely works, and I think it's a great program."
Who do we help?
People like Beatrice*,55, who is raising her 3-year-old grandson in Boston. Beatrice earns $7,000 annually in her part-time jobs at fast food restaurants, placing her at 43% of the federal poverty level.
Two years ago, she paid $400 for private tax preparation, an amount representing 17% of her tax credit and 6% of her annual earned income. During StreetCred’s 2016 pilot, we returned 100% of her $2,400 credit, money she used to buy previously unaffordable items for her grandson, such as toiletries, fresh produce, winter blankets and a nightlight.
