the foundation of all Matrix programs
ASPIRE Matrix, an updated version of Matrix’s Transition to Success™ model, is a demonstrated standard of care that addresses poverty as a treatable condition not a character flaw. ASPIRE Matrix achieves the ultimate goal of designing a systematic approach to addressing the social determinants and impacts of poverty.
ASPIRE Matrix, is a scalable, sustainable, multi-generational, measurable, evidence based collective impact business model that integrates treatment for poverty across health care, human services, education, faith based organizations and government programs. ASPIRE Matrix trains direct care staff to work with clients to define a CARE (Coordinating All Resources Effectively) Plan and a “Navigating Your Future.” The CARE Plan addresses immediate basic needs of food, healthcare and shelter, while the “Navigating Your Future” plots long term goals leading to financial stability and improved health. ASPIRE Matrix coordinates care for basic needs, literacy, getting an education, (including GED and higher education for parents), financial literacy and volunteerism; all key components for self-sufficiency.
- ASPIRE Matrix is embedded into every Matrix Human Services program with nearly 80% of all staff trained. 80%
With nearly $1.2 trillion dollars being spent on services for the poor annually, we believe that all social services organizations must integrate care and implement long-term solutions like ASPIRE Matrix.
