For this project, we worked with a local Family Resource Center that provides resources to help families. Four families were interviewed to understand how they view poverty related issues and their impacts on mental health and what they think could be done to address the issues. Based on an analysis of the data and the relevant research literature, the researchers used what they learned to formulate an action that responds to the focus issue. More specifically, the data suggested the importance of informing families about the benefits they can get from utilizing their local family resource center.
