Whether you are setting up a new program or strengthening an existing one, the Standards provide a blueprint for implementing best practice.

Please join us for our last All Member Meeting of 2018!
We are excited to close out the MFSA’s meeting calendar for this year with you. As you all recall, this year we’ve learned from presenters and one another about resources around financial literacy, employment and home ownership.
In November, we are excited to share information about the Family Independence Initiative, a results-driven program that asks the critical question, “Why make poverty tolerable, when we can make it escapable?” We will learn more about this revolutionary approach and about a small group of providers in Maricopa County looking to bring it to families here.
Additionally, David Lujan, the Director for the Arizona Center for Economic Progress, will again be joining us. Just days after mid-term elections, he will provide facts and updates regarding policy that impacts the families we serve.
We look forward to seeing you November 9th!
Please RSVP by November 6, 2018 for each individual planning to attend.
