Everyone – every household, every business, every family – needs to be wise about money.

Family Foundations offers tools, skills, support and solutions for families and individuals to benefit by translating financial knowledge into better financial behaviors. Our community benefits from the thousands of families who become financially stable because of Family Foundations. Financially stable families buy houses they desire and can afford, making neighborhoods stable. Children thrive when they live with financially fit families. We nurture and counsel people so they are able to develop devoted, loving families who know how to communicate with each other.

 Wise Money Week is a week of activities and events celebrating the importance of good money management and providing financial education designed to help us all become more wise about money. The Week will offer programs, classes and activities for all members of our Jacksonville community, all ages and income levels, during the week of May 11-May 17, 2014.

Family Foundations and the JAX Chamber announced the results of the Pilot Program for 1,000 in 1,000, a program to move 1,000 people out of poverty every 1,000 days.   “Now is the time for action because we are growing poverty instead of prosperity,” said Duval County Tax Collector and 1000 in 1000 Steering Committee Chair. Michael Corrigan. “Now that we have identified a cost-effective model for families in poverty, our community has a responsibility to ensure that Jacksonville families have access to this solution.” To learn more, click here.            
The federal government has allocated funding to help pay the mortgages of qualified homeowners who are unemployed or underemployed through no fault of their own. The Florida Hardest-Hit Fund (HHF) program aims to assess qualified Florida homeowners by providing mortgage assistance for up to 12 months (capped at $24,000), or until the homeowner finds adequate employment to resume paying the mortgage (whichever comes first), with up to $18,000 available to reinstate a delinquent first mortgage prior to payments being made.
