Public Benefits

Public benefits provide an important safety net for families in crisis due to job loss, illness, disability or divorce. Various government assistance programs are designed to lessen these hardships and to help families in poverty. The Shriver Center's advocacy work focuses on ensuring that adequate supports are available to individuals and families in need, and that the requirements imposed on individuals seeking assistance are reasonable.
