Come Join Us! Burst for Prosperity Annual Meeting.

We want to personally invite you to the Burst for Prosperity 3rd Annual Meeting to highlight our 2009 accomplishments and partnerships to the community. We will be reporting on many of the exciting strategic initiatives that are changing systems to provide greater opportunity for people in our communities to move out of poverty permanently. The meeting will feature residents and organizational partners who have worked closely with us and are the reason for our success. We want to take this opportunity to share these stories with you!

The Burst for Prosperity Initiative seeks to reduce poverty in Washington State by researching and testing innovative models informed by the community that transform systems to help people achieve financial independence.

In a recent poll, more than half of Washington State residents reported a permanent downward change in spending habits, and nearly a third of households have experienced unemployment or have difficulty paying for necessities like rent and heat.

Burst is currently expanding its work to impact a greater number of people living in poverty and continue to positively affect change in the regional and statewide systems that directly impact low-income individuals and families.
