Since 2008, SER Metro-Detroit’s Center for Working Families (CWF) has grown to become a point of reference in the community and beyond. CWF acts an umbrella program that provides wraparound services that help working families get ahead by improving their financial position on a long-term basis.
The goal is to support City of Detroit residents reach financial stability, self-sufficiency, and to advance economically. The program “bundles” three core services, Income Supports, Financial Coaching, and Employment Coaching.
CWF is one of the most popular programs at SER Metro-Detroit. This program is open to individuals and families looking to improve their overall financial position and has proven to be extremely beneficial to the community.
As a program, our clients have been able to reach several achievements such as an increase in net worth, dramatic decreases in debt, and build, establish or increase their credit scores. Collectively, we’ve had an increased number of homeowners and a decline in foreclosures. We continue to work hard for our community, for a stronger Detroit; and we are getting there, one step at the time.
