The Family Conservancy

The Family Conservancy (TFC) was first founded as The Provident Association in 1880 to help families with employment, floods, and epidemics. TFC now aims for the healthy development of children through supporting and educating parents and families. They have provided tools and resources to over 66,000 families in 2010, generating total revenue of over $13 million. TFC administers over 900 IDA accounts, making them the largest IDA administrator in the Kansas City metro area. These accounts serve participants from low-income communities including the Rose Brooks Center, a homeless shelter for women. As of 2006, 1,183 individual IDA accounts were opened with over $2.7 million in total potential savings deposited. To date, 170 IDA participants utilized their savings to purchase a home, while 175 used funds for higher education.
