Guaranteed Income

Resilient Communities for Every Child

“I am now convinced that the simplest approach will prove to be the most effective – the solution to poverty is to abolish it directly by a now widely discussed measure: the guaranteed income.”

– Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Jewish Family Service is the coordinating agency for San Diego for Every Child, a nonprofit coalition working to pilot the region’s first Guaranteed Income Project, known as Resilient Communities for Every Child. The project will launch in fall 2021 and serve as an economic justice tool to help address the racial and gender inequities that impact the lives of children experiencing poverty in San Diego County.

With COVID-19, social unrest, and an emerging recession, guaranteed income is an ideal program to address the experience of child poverty both in the current moment and beyond. The project is meant to inform future governmental and nonprofit policies. Learn more here.
