This report describes the successful economic mobility coaching model at Crittendon Women’s Union (now called Economic Mobility Pathways, or EM Path) to help low-income families in Boston gain economic independence. The report explains how coaching for economic mobility is distinct from other models of coaching that focus on specific issues, such as financial or career coaching, in isolation from other issues. In contrast, the EM Path model is holistic and seeks to address the interaction of multiple issues and barriers that can interfere with participants’ ability to move forward and achieve their goals.
