Summary

Did you know when a welfare mom works, she is immediately cut off, reduced, and or experiences increases in her life-sustaining benefits(i.e. healthcare, food, and housing)? Uncle Sam will give her the world as long as she stays home and does nothing! Then our media portrays these "welfare moms" as lazy, apathetic leeches to the system! MOMS DON'T WANT WELFARE- THEY WANT WEALTHFAIR! And our 37ft RV and message need your support! With the recent fuel increases, were running out of GAS-FAST!

Challenge

Low-income moms who receive government assistance are penalized for working. As soon as a mom enters or returns to the workforce, the benefits she depends on to support her family (i.e., food, healthcare, childcare, formula for babies, and housing) are drastically cut, or lost altogether, leaving her no room to live. This situation leaves these moms stuck at the bottom, incentivized to at stay home and do nothing while receiving more money than if they were employed.

Solution

This tour is our "National Scavenger Hunt" to locate the $18.9 billion in federal opportunities for low-income people through HUD's Section 3 program. HUD-Assisted families are unaware of their rights and the economic opportunities that are available to them to better their situations. The WEALTHFAIR tour will educate low-income residents and give them the tools they need to build wealth and a better quality of life.

Long-Term Impact

WEALTHFAIR Tour Goals: Launch 3,000 new businesses Facilitate $3 million in Section 3 contracts Purchase 300 homes w/ Section 8 vouchers Enroll 3,000 new families in the FSS program Enroll 3,000 moms in post-secondary schools Assist 300 resident councils in acquiring an equity partnership stake in their redevelopment deals Re-Birth and or establish 3,000 new resident councils Establish 300 youth councils Engage 30,000 people in civic education Help 300 fathers get our of the child support system
