ACHIEVEability understands the value of measurements and accountability in helping families reach self-sufficiency. To this end, ACHIEVEability has developed the Family Self-Sufficiency Continuum, a tool to measure a family’s progress toward self-sufficiency. The continuum contains objective, measurable criteria for finance, education, parenting and personal development. Movement upward along the continuum, from level one through level five, represents success and accomplishments that will bring the family from depending on supportive services to self reliance.
