At Compass Working Capital, we have learned that low-income families are able to get ahead when they have the chance to build savings and assets. Assets are how we get ahead in this country: buying a home; investing in an education to get a better-paying job, or saving so our children can; starting a business, or saving for emergencies.
To build savings and assets, you need a few things: financial capabilities, strong financial guidance, and access to high-quality financial products and services. All things that are out of reach for most low-income families.
Compass is changing that. Through our programs, we are putting the tools to build assets and financial capabilities into the hands of low-income families and empowering the families we serve to build a pathway out of poverty.
There’s something special about our country — and so much worth protecting and preserving for future generations. From stunning waterways like Chesapeake Bay and the Great Lakes, to beloved national parks like Acadia and Mount Rainier, America’s natural wonders enrich our lives in countless ways.
But too often powerful industries and shortsighted politicians stand in the way of meaningful action on some of the most urgent issues facing our environment today, from global warming to clean water. Defending our environment requires sustained independent research, tough-minded advocacy and spirited grassroots action.
That’s the idea behind Environment America. Together with more than a million supporters from all walks of life, we take the kind of action that wins tangible results for our environment.
