On Sunday, May 24th, The Boston Globe ran a piece on four local families who have succeeded in moving up and out of poverty. The story featured Vilmarys Cintron, a graduate of one of our financial coaching and savings programs operated in partnership with Lynn Housing Authority and Neighborhood Development.
Our programs support residents of subsidized housing to build savings and assets as a pathway out of poverty. With support from Compass, Vilmarys transitioned out of public housing, purchased her own home, and launched an in-home daycare business.
