Special Issue: Building Financial Capability and Assets in America’s Families

Families in Society: The Journal of Contemporary Social Services has released a special issue on Building Financial Capability and Assets in America’s Families, developed from papers presented during Financial Capability and Asset Building: Achievements, Challenges, and Next Steps, a national conference hosted at Washington University in St. Louis by the Center for Social Development in the Brown School and by the Financial Social Work Initiative in the University of Maryland School of Social Work.

Articles in the issue examine the theory and practice of financial capability and asset building, with particular focus on vulnerable families in the United States and on the barriers that impede their path to financial well-being. In the issue’s introduction, the editors note, “As these articles vividly demonstrate, the times demand that human services professionals focus on financial well-being.”
