Abstract

Financial stress is a condition that occurs commonly in the United States, especially in single-mothers and their children. This stress can be a barrier to optimal health and wellness. In an effort to reduce financial stress and improve money management skills in low income, single mother families, the Financial Success Program (FSP) was created. This novel program provides education and support to an underserved population and may also improve the health and well-being of the women and children enrolled. Through a unique inter-professional collaboration, a study was initiated to assess the effect of financial education on health indicators in single-mother families. A thorough discussion of the FSP and inter-professional model will be discussed as a framework for addressing public health needs in a financially stressed population.
