WHY IS THE PROJECT IMPORTANT
In every community, there are citizens living paycheck to paycheck. We recognize that some of these individuals can be more economically productive in the community if they can access a support structure. This structure will not only help the individuals/families be more productive but will also provide awareness. This support will possibly break down misperception for those who do not live in the “paycheck to paycheck” situation. This awareness also hopefully will help the broader community and bring more empathy and productivity.
This project was chosen to support individual families and their role in Hermann’s economic development. This project takes a individual approach to personal development, and financial growth and civic responsibility.

OVERALL PROJECT GOAL
We plan to help individuals grow and prosper in our community by providing the skills and education necessary to achieve financial independence, improved professional skills and assume community leadership roles. Give access to the program for all families that need support and guidance. Our ultimate goal is to eliminate the cycle of living “paycheck to paycheck” and help destigmatize people who might need help.
