A self-sufficient adult needs no outside help in satisfying their basic needs. They earn enough from working to take care of their housing, food, and other living expenses.
The Bridge to Self-Sufficiency®
The Bridge to Self-Sufficiency® shows you the path to self-sufficiency on one piece of paper so you can begin to set and achieve goals for the future.
This tool identifies five key pillars of adult life, and explains how to navigate the connections between them.
- Family Stability
- Well Being
- Financial Management
- Education & Training
- Employment & Career
A solid foundation is always built from the ground up. The pillars of the bridge serve as a foundation for achieving future goals and self-sufficiency. The tool is just a snapshot of where you are at a given time. It is NOT an indication of your potential.
