America Saves Week 2010 starts next week, on Feb. 21st. And the supporting organization offers ideas for both individuals and companies.

I am doing some board development work with the non-profit Community Lodgings – a great group in Alexandria, Va. – which helps homeless families transition into a more stable environment.
Many homeless families are not dumb people. They are folks who were one medical emergency, or one job loss away, from catastrophe and a bad thing happened to them. Community Lodgings helps them by providing financial literacy and job search skills and education as well as a place to live for up to two years.
We never think this could happen to us, do we?
