San Antonio: Increasing the Financial Health of San Antonio Residents & Multi-Sector Strategies that Drive Security and Equity

The economic health of cities and communities depends on the financial health and stability of residents. Economically secure families are better able to weather temporary income drops, they are less likely to rely on local services, and they can also better contribute to the local economy. What do we know about the financial health of families in the San Antonio region? How do these issues relate to equity and economic segregation in the City of San Antonio? What can be done to increase the financial health of families?

On May 2, attendees listened to an important conversation about improving the financial health of working families in San Antonio, and learned about the latest city-level data revealing the financial health of San Antonio as well as insights about replicable strategies that promote economic security and equity.
