Keeping Parents Engaged
We will offer participants opportunities to supplement their income with incentives in the form of earned vouchers to encourage participation in our programs and classes.
Offering monetary incentives will encourage our families to set goals, support productive choices and motivate planning ahead. The voucher system is based on contingency management, which means that participants' behaviors are rewarded for adherence to program guidelines, and for their participation in programs and classes offered.
Vouchers can be used immediately to supplement their monthly income –to buy groceries or gasoline. They can also be saved to purchase larger items –mattresses, washing machines or other durable goods. Vouchers cannot and will never be given as cash.
