Get in Touch

Let us know how you are using, or considering using, the Self-Sufficiency Standard data. We love to connect with users and to help new data users problem solve or think through new uses. While the Standard is updated in most states regularly, we are still working on building partnerships in some states. Let us know if your interested in helping us finding a sponsoring organization in your state.
The Center for Women's Welfare is a research organization and unfortunately does not provide direct service provision (housing, direct financial assistance, or counseling services). If you are trying to access help in Washington State, please visit call 211 for assistance.
