THE EVIDENCE OF CIRCUMSTANCE
The cost of poverty is carried by more than the poor. It robs society of productive potential. It wastes money on ineffective programs. It silences the voices of those with the most to say. We’re not interested in lukewarm solutions that focus on treating poverty symptoms at the expense of the people most affected. We aim to make the lives of others sustainably and meaningfully better.
That’s why we created Padua. In 2015, we launched a bold research initiative to pioneer a more effective solution to poverty. Our Padua Pilot rewrote the manual: A model centered on long-term, holistic case management services that address the interconnected causes of poverty and serve the unique needs of each family. It’s relationship-based. It’s client-led. And it’s working.
Moving beyond one-off programmatic interventions, Padua is designed to support clients across all areas that contribute to long term growth and success.
It’s not enough to simply believe ending poverty is possible. We have to find a new path that others can follow.
What does it really mean to be out of poverty?
It means earning a living wage to sustain your family. It means having savings in the bank and demonstrating savings behavior. It means being free of government subsidies. It means being out of the never-ending cycle.
How it Works
By creating a community support system, we give each client a group of people they can turn to for support as they move towards stability and independence.
