This August 2017 press release highlights findings from a new three-year evaluation of the Financial Empowerment Center model. The evaluation draws on data from 22,000 clients and 57,000 counseling sessions across the first 5 city replication partners and shows that financial counseling worked as a public program in a variety of city contexts. City partners were Denver, CO; Lansing, MI; Nashville, TN; Philadelphia, PA and San Antonio, TX. View or listen to the CFE Fund’s presentation highlighting key findings and lessons learned from the evaluation.
