Why is Houston Money Week relevant?
In 2016, the combined efforts of 140+ partners from various industries served over 11,000 people in the greater Houston area. Those served included children in all grade levels, college students, small business owners, veterans, men and women. Of those served, 45% were African-American and 28% Hispanic. The most startling statistic was related to household income. Over half of those served had a household income of less than $35,000 per year.
