Evidence Summaries

Switchboard helps refugees service providers in the U.S. design and implement evidence-based interventions through the production of Evidence Summaries. These resources summarize the literature and state of evidence related to specific outcomes or interventions. Evidence Summary topics are determined each year based on the results of Switchboard’s Annual Needs Assessment. Evidence summaries are developed on the basis of an Evidence Summary Protocol.

Limited but strong evidence supports financial capability interventions. Studies with low-income populations find that financial capability interventions lead to numerous positive outcomes such as increased income and savings, better job placement and retention, higher credit scores, and progress toward financial self-sufficiency.
