#165: Carolyn Davis, Director of Community Engagement, Momentum.org Do Matched SAVINGS for Low-Income Families Work?

Momentum.org runs many programs targeted to low income families and individuals. These include skills-based training programs, resume workshops and help with finances. The org also has a matched-savings app 'Quber' to help those struggling. While its programming is located in Alberta, the organization has many resources available online below. I chat with Carolyn Davis, Director of Community Engagement to learn more about the organization's work and whether or not the matched savings program leads to a change in behaviour.

🎙 ABOUT THE PODCAST

Imagine if you could explore, with genuine curiosity, the most controversial and divisive topics of our time. The conversations would push you to explore new areas and uncover insightful ‘a-ha’ moments that pique your interest. I’m Christopher, and I have created engaging Podcast discussions since 2018 to do exactly this. I have completed Podcast series on abortion, tobacco control, basic income and more. I invite guests involved in these areas to share with me their opinions. My hope is that through this natural exploration, I can craft a Podcast experience that attempts to build bridges during a time when we need it the most. Join me on the Open Minds with Christopher Balkaran Podcast.
