Blog Webinar to Highlight Well Being of Kids 2015

Near­ly 60% of Amer­i­cans are strug­gling finan­cial­ly. How are the 48 mil­lion kids in these house­holds faring?

Next month, the Cen­ter for Finan­cial Ser­vices Inno­va­tion (CFSI) will host a webi­nar that aims to answer this ques­tion, high­light­ing its new report focused on how the finan­cial health of low- to mod­er­ate-income fam­i­lies affects their children.

The report, which Casey fund­ed, draws from the nation­al­ly rep­re­sen­ta­tive data in CFSI’s Con­sumer Finan­cial Health Study to pro­vide insight on the ways that U.S. house­holds man­age their day-to-day finances and unex­pect­ed ups and downs, as well as how they plan for the future. Because we know that a child’s well-being is close­ly tied to his or her family’s finan­cial sta­bil­i­ty, we asked CFSI to specif­i­cal­ly exam­ine data from house­holds with chil­dren to bet­ter under­stand the par­tic­u­lar finan­cial strengths and chal­lenges that par­ents face.

To find out what the data revealed, reg­is­ter for the webi­nar, and sign up for CFSI’s newslet­ter to receive the report when it’s released in ear­ly November.

What: Webi­nar on finan­cial health of low- to mod­er­ate-income fam­i­lies with children
When: 12 p.m. EST Thurs­day, Nov. 19
