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.”

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.
