The Family Bottom Line

Partners in the Opportunity@Work Coalition believe that all Nebraskans have a stake in the financial stability of our families, children, communities and businesses. With financial stability, families and children benefit through a greater likelihood of overall well-being including improved educational attainment, health, and property ownership, maintenance and value. Furthermore, communities and businesses benefit through increased community prosperity and investment, civic engagement, a more highly skilled workforce, and a decrease in financially stressed employees. In order to ensure that all families, regardless of income level and geography, have equal opportunities to gain, maintain and grow in financial stability, it is critical to understand where financial stability begins.

The Family Bottom Line was written to establish a contextually relevant benchmark against which to compare Nebraska families to determine how they are faring economically relative to where they live.
