How’s Your Safety Net? 

What’s a safety net and why do you need one? A safety net is something you put into place to protect yourself from hardship and poverty.  

Your Safety Net consists of 5 different parts: housing, transportation, food security, healthcare and wellness, and childcare. 
   
When a part of your Safety Net falls out of place, life can become difficult, threatening your ability to maintain a job, go to school, and more. Is your Safety Net in place? 

Take a look at the Safety Net online learning badge in Blackboard to get tips on: 

  • how to build and maintain your safety net 
  • how to access free local support resources  
  • how to keep yourself and your family safe 

Access all of the Counseling Services badges, including the Safety Net badge.
