For many low-income working families, a gap exists between their pay, work-related benefits and support and what they need to achieve family well-being and economic stability. The COVID-19 pandemic has deepened economic challenges and risks for families. The Center for Public Justice, a national Christian policy and civic engagement organization, proposes to develop and test a research model and media strategies that engage people of faith, including low-income families and faith-shaped employers, in informing and advancing work-family supports. Partnering with the Calvin University Center for Social Research (CSR), CPJ will generate research and policy briefs documenting employer and family experiences and attitudes about several family-supportive policies. This locally grounded research will assess and help build support for family-supportive policies among faith-shaped employers and community leaders in West Michigan and nationally.
