The New York Times shines a light on why a shift to a focus on wellbeing and paying attention to tradeoffs will create opportunities for people to make change that lasts: FFI is featured in a recent article by David Bornstein that discusses what we believe is driving cycles of poverty, violence and trauma and shares examples about why we must move away from short-term fixes to more effectively address social problems. Because there’s more to say about this innovative work and what it looks like on the ground, there will be a second column next week highlighting our partnerships with pioneering government agencies in Massachusetts and Missouri.
We’re adding new partnerships and staffing up to increase access to wellbeing and justice across the country. And in January, we’re announcing a game-changing new opportunity. Make sure you’re signed up for the newsletter and follow us on social media!
