Siemer Institute for Family Stability

Overview

Siemer Institute for Family Stability

In January 2016, we launched a  two-generation initiative to improve kids’ academic stability and achievement by helping at-risk households in the Robla School District to address housing and financial instability in both the short and long term. Our lead partner is Mutual Assistance Network, with support from Sacramento Self-Help Housing and Roberts Family Development Center. Funding for this effort comes from the Siemer Institute for Family Stability, which supports over 50 United Ways around the country to implement similar efforts.

Improving academic stability for children

The Siemer Institute is based in Ohio and funds United Ways around the country to improve academic stability for school-aged children. The funding they provide is to be used by local partners to address the financial stability of at-risk households, with a particular focus on housing stability. The aim is to prevent children from having to make disruptive moves in the middle of their school year.
