At The One Less Foundation, we take a two-generation approach to solve the systemic problems of poverty. We provide financial literacy and capability, supplemental education, and personal mentoring programs; and advocate for policies that support financial inclusion and equity.
We take a grassroots approach by creating programs with flexibility so they can be tailored to fit individual needs versus the use of generic blanket "solutions". We work with proven concepts and theories to create programmatic solutions for each individual, family, and community we work with.
Our advocacy works to solve the root causes of poverty, and endeavors to create an equitable financial floor that no one falls below. Our goal is to affect policy that puts everyone on a solid financial foundation so they can thrive.
With our programs and with our advocacy work - we create paths out of poverty.
We are also a United Nations recognized Civil Society Organization led by a board of directors made up of community and corporate leaders from various industries, who share a common philosophy: we can do something about poverty.
