Integrating Financial Capability Services into Community Health Centers
This brief is the fourth of a five-part series that highlights the need and opportunity for integrating financial capability services into social service programs. The goal of this integration is to improve overall financial outcomes that lead to financial security for low- and moderate-income households. This brief concentrates on why providers of health care services should focus on the multiple dimensions of individuals’ financial lives and how the government can encourage the integration of financial capability services into the community health care system. The first brief in this series describes the need for integrating financial capability into social services, the second focuses on integrating financial capability into career pathway services and the third discusses the integration of financial capability into the housing system.
