The integrated services strategy that is central to the WSSN model was developed to help low-income students reach financial stability and move up the economic ladder by promoting an innovative framework that integrates and bundles three distinct but related services:
Education and employment advancement
Income and work supports
Financial services and asset building
Strategies that ensure the scalability and sustainability of this integrated support services model help colleges build their capacity to support a student-focused culture in each of ATD’s Institutional Capacity Framework areas. These strategies reflect the collective learnings of WSSN colleges, state partners, and ATD facilitators.
