INCREASE INCOME TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF STRUGGLING HOUSEHOLDS
 
Increased income is essential to help struggling households make ends meet and create a foundation for a prosperous future. Family-sustaining employment is the foundation of financial stability. It is critical to connect youth and adult learners to education and work experience opportunities. 
 
OUR LONG-TERM GOAL 
Increase income to reduce the number of struggling households in Snohomish County from 60,000 to 30,000.
 
2016-2020 INVESTMENT PERIOD
We will focus on supporting low-income adults and youth to improve their employability and maximize eligible benefit income. We will continue to develop our strategy and resource support for these over the next ten years (2016-2026).
