Background

Imagine being so close to the financial edge that a single life event could push you and your family over a layoff, a health emergency or an educational setback. Thousands of North Texans face these life-changing circumstances every day. Communities Foundation of Texas and KERA, the public broadcasting station of North Texas, have partnered together on the One Crisis Away project, following four families facing these kinds of issues and the organizations helping them to get back on their feet. The ongoing series includes radio and video feature stories and interviews from KERA News; conversations on KERA FM’s Think; and a free public forum at the Dallas City Performance Hall on February 27 at 7pm.

Hosted by Krys Boyd, the One Crisis Away free public forum will address the issue of asset poverty with guests Andrea Levere, president, Corporation for Enterprise Development; Alfreda Norman, vice president and community development officer, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas; and Larry James, president & CEO, CitySquare. One Crisis Away is funded in part by Communities Foundation of Texas, Allstate Foundation, the Dallas Women's Foundation, The Fort Worth Foundation, The Thomson Family Foundation and the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas.
