Program Work

The goal of our program work is to help families, seniors, and the communities in which they live, become and remain economically secure. We define economic security as not only having enough money to take care of yourself and your family, but also having the ability to save and develop assets. We measure economic security--and ultimately the success of our programs--through the Self-Sufficiency Standard and the Elder Economic Security Standard. The Standards quantify what it costs to pay for the basics--like rent, food, health care, transportation, and taxes--in different communities across America. Through our Building Economic Security for All (BESA) project, we promote the use of these Standards to evaluate and develop more effective public policy for working families and retired elders.
