Since our founding in 1985, New Economics For Women (NEW) has maintained that economic stability and mobility is a fundamental human right. Standing in the way of that right is a complex system of barriers that keeps underserved families, particularly women and children, in a cycle of generational poverty. Over the last 35+ years, NEW has addressed this complex system of barriers, and continues to deliver on its mission to spark economic mobility through wealth creation programs, services, housing, education, entrepreneurship and advocacy for economic justice. As of 2021, NEW has evolved to annually serve nearly 17,000 people and has developed over 1,600 units of affordable housing across 15 housing developments, built and rehabilitated 110 affordable single-family homes, built more than 200,000 square feet of community, public school and health clinic space, and created two high-performing charter elementary schools. We are invested and proud of our model and position to drive forward innovative solutions that help families experience economic mobility. Join our team of champions for economic justice!
Kids First is a City of Los Angeles program that seeks to improve educational outcomes of housing insecure students in the San Fernando Valley. The program achieves this through a partnership between LAUSD, North Valley Caring Services, and New Economics for Women in which collaborative case management and wrap around services including basic needs, mental health resources, financial wellness coaching, and academic assistance navigation are provided to break barriers that impede academic success and overall wellbeing for families.
Case Management is a primary function of the Kids First Project, and at New Economics for Women (NEW), Case Managers facilitate this function. A Case Manager engages customers using a holistic framework to assess customers’ needs and goals. Utilizing a strength-based approach and financial coaching strategies, Case Managers will facilitate pathways to prosperity by connecting the customer’s values and skills to their goals and financial capability. All Prosperity Coaches must understand the Kids First Project purpose, vision, and objectives, be knowledgeable of services and resources, and engage in the following activities: outreach, intake/assessments, referrals, collaborative case management, and customer follow up. As an ambassador for the organization, this person is also responsible for actively supporting the overall mission and vision of NEW.
