How can you give a hand up to someone who struggles financially yet has enormous potential? Our guest Jon Hanson decided to start a charity to do just that.
Jon Hanson, Stewardship for Life
Jon Hanson is Executive Director of Stewardship for Life, which aims to make a difference by helping one family at a time.
Their mission is to distribute financial literacy education for low to moderate income and middle class citizens. This is meant to alleviate “Generational Poverty” through education, counseling, and shepherding participants through four core areas.
They aim to develop a community and engage that community to help at least one of those members to move up the social economic status ladder.
Their 2014 Life Capital Award Winner is a young single mom named Melissa, who is now working toward successful completion of the Life Capital program. That will include college, a higher income and home ownership... a hand up to help her get back on her feet.
