The Economic Journey ("The Journey") takes each participant on a journey that will lead to economic self-sufficiency; for others, increased economic resiliency and housing stability. The Sullivan Center will offer a deeper and more sustained relationship for each participant, through their economic crisis, but one that leads to a longer and more sustained transformation. We will create supportive relationships and help clients progressively expand their goals and aspirations. Each person that goes on "The Journey" will learn how to earn it, keep it, and grow it. Earn it: by acquiring the skills needed for advanced placement in the workplace. Keep it: by improving their ability to make ends meet, protect their earning, and stretch their dollars. Grow it: by fostering savings and building assets to allow them to pay off debt, establish credit, secure a fair-priced mortgage, car loan or insurance, contribute to their children’s education and save for retirement.
