Indiana Assets & Opportunity Network Breakfast presented by AARP
Asset building, by definition, is how individuals, families, and communities gather the resources that will move them towards economic well-being, for now and for years to come. Traditionally we’ve focused on financial interventions such as building savings, buying a home, pursuing education, or starting a business. Recently, we have added access to healthcare to the conversation about assets. But what if we are still missing one foundational aspect of asset building?
Using both story and science, this presentation will highlight the ways that chronic toxic stress impacts those who are trying to exit poverty and the helpers that are supporting them, and recommend strategies for recovery, healing, and care that can make our asset building efforts more effective and impactful.
