Foothills Family Resources Executive Director Named Inaugural ‘Platforms for Prosperity’ Fellow

SLATER-MARIETTA, S.C. – Foothills Family Resources Executive Director David Bolton was recently selected as one of six nonprofit leaders from across the country chosen to participate in the inaugural Platforms for Prosperity Integration Fellowship.

Developed by the Corporation for Enterprise Development (website here) in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families and the Bank of America, the fellowship seeks to further integrate financial capability services into workforce development programs, enhancing both employment and financial outcomes for clients.

Through the Fellowship, which will run through September 2016, participants will receive individualized technical assistance from CFED and will also take part in peer learning through virtual meetings and site visits to successful financial capability integration sites.

“It’s an honor to be selected, and I look forward to learning from some of the leaders in the field,” Bolton said. “The goal is empowering those living in poverty through financial coaching and wealth development via savings, credit repair, capital purchases and investments, moving them to and beyond self-sufficiency.”

Bolton was nominated by United Way of Greenville County.
