Researchers : Money $mart in Head Start: Financial Education and Outreach with Head Start Families
Complete Description:During the past two school years, the Center for Financial Security has been involved in the Money $mart in Head Start program, which delivers financial capability services to Head Start families across 16 Wisconsin counties. Local Head Start programs and UW - Cooperative Extension offices collaborate in promoting and delivering three financial capability building services to Head Start families: monthly financial newsletters, financial literacy workshops, and financial coaching. The Money $mart in Head Start program represents an innovative approach to collaborating across organizations to reach a financially vulnerable population. This recent CFS issue brief describes the Money $mart in Head Start in detail and highlights some key findings from survey data collected during the project.
