The Prosperity Partnership's economic mobility pillar, also known as Prosperity Broward, is launching a ground-breaking pilot project to increase economic mobility through policy and system changes. To identify the area and population for the pilot, Prosperity Broward's Data Working Group analyzed our local communities, which identified mothers from Lauderdale Lakes as the segment of our population experiencing the highest disparities.
Our Data Working Group conducted a detailed analysis of our local communities, which identified mothers from Lauderdale Lakes as the segment of our population experiencing the highest level of disparities. These residents will serve as co-researchers of our pilot project and will have a seat at the table with business and nonprofit leaders to design transformational solutions and best practices.
After the co-research process, systemic changes and new policies will be introduced and adopted, along with a roadmap to help and empower other communities to dismantle their barrier to economic mobility. We anticipate that at least 5% of mothers living in our pilot city will have a pathway out of poverty.
Our supporting partners are the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Broward College, OIC of South Florida, Children Service's Council, United Way of Broward County, CareerSource Broward, Urban League of Broward, City of Lauderdale Lakes, Memorial Healthcare System, Broward Technical Colleges, 211 Broward, and the Early Learning Coalition of Broward.
