Mindset to Self Sufficiency 

Providing Everything You Need

We have created a pilot program and implemented tools from Empath Exchange framework to develop a self sufficiency program within the city of Detroit using a Mobility Mentoring Approach . EMPath's Bridge to Self-Sufficiency is a theory of change that breaks down silos and uses a comprehensive approach to upward economic mobility.


Why Work With A Coach

The Bridge to Self-Sufficiency is a special tool to chart a path to economic self-sufficiency. “The Bridge” was developed by EMPath and is backed by emerging brain science. Mobility Mentoring uses The Bridge to Self-Sufficiency in order to help families achieve long-term economic mobility.


The Bridge helps families plan, reach, and sustain their personal goals in five essential areas: family stability, well-being, education and training, financial management, and employment and career management.


The Bridge to Self-Sufficiency takes a comprehensive approach, because difficulties in one part of someone’s life can create difficulties in another. Fortunately, the opposite holds true, as well. Success in one part of someone’s life can reinforce success in another

How It Works:

The Mindset to Self-Sufficiency program is a 10-week journey designed to empower limited-income individuals to cultivate the mindset and skills necessary for achieving self-sufficiency and financial independence. Through a combination of interactive workshops, coaching sessions, and practical exercises, participants will learn how to overcome limiting beliefs, set achievable goals, and develop strategies for building a stable and prosperous future.

Program Objectives:

  1. Mindset Transformation: Help participants identify and overcome limiting beliefs related to self-worth, abundance, and success.

  2. Goal Setting: Assist participants in setting clear and actionable goals aligned with their vision for self-sufficiency.

  3. Financial Literacy: Provide basic financial education on budgeting, saving, debt management, and wealth building.

  4. Skill Development: Equip participants with practical skills and resources to enhance their employability and income potential.

  5. Support Network: Foster a supportive community where participants can connect, share experiences, and encourage each other's growth.


Program Delivery:

  • In-person workshops and coaching sessions held at a community center or designated venue.

  • Online resources, including video tutorials, worksheets, and discussion forums, accessible via the program website.

  • Peer support and networking opportunities facilitated through group activities and social media platforms.

The Mindset to Self-Sufficiency program offers a holistic approach to personal development and empowerment for limited-income individuals. By combining mindset transformation, skill development, and community support, participants will gain the confidence and tools needed to pursue their goals and create a brighter future for themselves and their families.
