Report Shows 62% of Getting Ahead Grads Have Reduced Their Use of Benefits

February 7, 2017 Published by Philip DeVol

Getting Ahead Facilitator NotesThe first national report of Getting Ahead outcomes, which was released in early January, shows a 62% reduction in the use of benefits, a 74% decrease in total debt, and a 38% increase in monthly income for Getting Ahead (GA) graduates. Thanks to the 199 participating GA grads, facilitators, and organizers from 38 sites in eight states (evaluated from September 2013 to December 2016), we have our first look at data that will grow quickly as other GA groups join Charity Tracker’s data-collection system.

We know that the Bridges Out of Poverty movement must prove its effectiveness, and much of that has to do with how GA graduates benefit from the Bridges model in their communities.

Bridges sites contract directly with Charity Tracker for training and services. aha! Process’s role is to pay for the development of the tools and the reports. Each site gets reports on its own outcomes, along with comparative state and national data provided by aha! Process. Solid and convincing information is helpful when writing grants and securing funding.

The report (see below) provides anonymous information on the increase in stability, the growth of 11 resources, and the return on investment (or ROI). These elements derive from the Getting Ahead theory of change that instability makes it difficult for under-resourced people to take charge of their lives, make changes, and build resources.

The research continues to substantiate the Getting Ahead process and validate the “Getting Together to Get Ahead” program. Mentors are great connectors and sounding boards for future stories.

Am thinking that Tom Mulloy, National SVdP officer, may have additional research statistics regarding poverty that may be helpful. When we were creating our new website, he provided excellent statistics regarding national poverty trends. Tom’s email is: TMulloy@svdpusa.org

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
