The Live Mutual Project is a MassMutual Foundation-led initiative that brings together community resources and partners to create vibrant and empowered neighborhoods.
Systems and resources meant to support residents can oftentimes be confusing and overwhelming. Support from family, friends, neighbors, and community organizations can help us navigate our complicated lives.
Connections in the community can open doors to jobs, reveal practical financial advice, and uncover paths to reasonable loans and other resources to help meet our daily obligations and goals.
Our Focus on Community Connections and Financial Capabilities to achieve Financial Well-Being
The Live Mutual Project is guided by the belief that financial well-being happens when individuals have strong community connections and financial capabilities. Yet the complex systems and resources meant to support communities can often be confusing and overwhelming. Family, friends, neighbors, and community organizations can help us navigate these systems and access the things we need. Connections in the community can also open doors to jobs, reveal practical financial advice, and uncover paths to loans and other financial resources.
Service providers come together to identify what's in the way of achieving financial well-being in their community.
Build relationships with a broad network of people who can provide support and access to new opportunities.
Reinvent public spaces to bring community members together to build strong networks.
Bring together business, government, and nonprofits to break down systemic barriers to financial well-being.
Develop skills and access to good jobs that are close to home.
Earn and spend in the local neighborhood or town where you live.
Develop skills to save, spend, borrow, and plan and access loans, bank accounts and credit.
