Family Economic Supports
A client receives tax-preparation help through the National Tax Assistance for Working Families program of the Annie E. Casey Foundation. Metis devised a data-collection system that measures not only how much money participating families save on taxes, but the program's reach and impact on the community.
The current economy presents major challenges to the future economic prosperity of both families and their communities. Metis provides services to groups that are helping low-income working families build strong financial futures in strong neighborhoods—often involving workforce development and community investment as well. Metis Associates provides expert assistance to foundations and other nonprofits that are seeking to implement programs to help families better sustain their economic prospects. Metis works with groups providing low-income families with information, resources, and strategies to help stabilize their income and build wealth and assets.
