There are a number of families currently living in poverty across the United States (Census, 2010). These families are often stressed and spread thin in their daily lives. Different governmental supports are used to bolster individuals and families during their experiences of poverty. One such entity is the United States Department of Housing and Urban Affairs (HUD). This agency provides housing to countless residents each year (HUD, 2016). Much is known about the different program that HUD offers but information is limited what strengths families can bring in that can aid in their experiences while living in poverty. Using Hierarchical Linear Modeling (HLM) the first analysis addresses what can be predictive of socioeconomic status for families. A second set of analyses were preformed, using both cross-lagged and latent growth modeling, to assess the interconnected nature of resilience within these families.
