Poverty Solutions, Inc., founded in 2008, is a non-profit CDFI that designs and deploys programs that empower low-income persons and families to become self-sufficient.

Our programs bridge the gap in poverty by providing financing, financial-education, employment-training, affordable-housing, entrepreneurship-training, microenterprise-financing, health and human services that empower low-income families, veterans, at-risk youths, unemployed, and other underserved adult populations to divest poverty while building healthy communities and meeting the demands of today’s social, economic and technological agendas.


Training, Investments and Advocacy that that empower low-income persons and families

P-Solutions promotes Affordable Housing, Community Economic Development Lending, Financial Literacy Training, and Entrepreneurship. We develop financing tools that create access to capital to low-income persons (LIPs) and in low-income communities (LICs) by leveraging private sector investment in LICs at scales sufficient to transform LICs and LIPs.  P-Solutions serves some of the most economically distressed communities in California.  Some of the large urban counties that P-Solutions serves such as Los Angeles has one of the biggest gap for adequate, affordable, and access to credit.

Our goal is to offer a successful transition of low-income and/or homeless veterans by providing emergency and supportive housing, food, health services, occupational skills training and placement assistance, financial literacy, entrepreneurship assistance, legal aid and case management support.


According to the HUD/VA supplemental report, veterans are 50 percent more likely to become homeless compared to all Americans, and the risk is even greater among veterans living in poverty and minority veterans.  Nearly half of homeless veterans were located in California, Texas, New York and Florida, while only 28 percent of all veterans were located in those same four states.


Poverty Solutions strongly encourages education, self-improvement, self-confidence, self-sufficiency, self-respect, personal responsibility, money management and work ethics while discouraging illegal activities and self-destructive behaviors through our Divest Poverty Workshops.



Poverty Solutions, Inc. provides comprehensive financial education from budgeting and saving, debt management counseling and homebuying workshops to foreclosure prevention counseling.
