Scaling Transition to Success to Treat Poverty

Commitment by

Matrix Human Services

In 2014, Matrix Human Services (MHS) committed to scaling its Transition To Success (TTS) program, which is a model of care that treats poverty as a treatable condition. TTS integrates demonstrated best practices of care management, volunteerism, financial literacy and peer mentoring across health care, human services, education, faith based and government programs TTS trains direct care staff to work with clients to define a plan to address immediate basic needs, such as food and shelter, along with identifying long-term goals, including employment and financial stability. The expansion will include the development of a technology platform to make systems and operations more efficient, in order to reach more clients in need and train more trainers to expand and replicate the TTS Model.
