According to CFED’s 2016 Assets and Opportunities Scorecard, 45 percent of Humboldt County residents are liquid asset poor, meaning that they have insufficient savings to survive three months at the poverty level. The consequences of this perilous financial condition are not only significant for the individual, but for their household, their community and the broader economy. A financial shock can result in homelessness, school disruption for children, emotional or physical stress, and criminal behavior. Not to mention that individuals and households that lack economic self-sufficiency rely on greater government support and are much less able to participate in the economy.

Improving financial health requires coordination at the individual, community, and systems levels. All sectors have a role to play in improving the financial well-being of their clients, constituents, and community members. This community development forum will highlight data about the regional economic condition with an emphasis on outcomes for socially marginalized or financially vulnerable households.

Join local leaders and stakeholders to discuss shared challenges and opportunities and discover new ways to work together.
