Effects of Value-Based Financial Literacy on African American Families
Financial poverty is a chronic stressor for African American families. Research suggest that financial literacy/education programs help mitigate financial strain for families. This study evaluates the effectiveness of value-based financial literacy programming on a primarily African American based population. The guiding framework is grounded in the Family Stress and Resilience Theory.
Implications for Practitioners
Value-based intervention, such as the FSP program, is an effective learning delivery model for low-income participants. The combination of financial education and ongoing coaching may offer a pathway out of chronic financial strain to more financial stability for low-income families.
