This report details the work of DCA's Capacity Building Initiative, which funded five nonprofit organizations to provide financial counseling to their clients who included formerly incarcerated adults, foster care youth, young adult interns, young fathers, and workforce development clients. Initial findings indicate that individuals in workforce development programs who received financial counseling achieved better outcomes than comparison group clients who did not receive financial counseling.
