Women of color spend a great deal of time tending to the needs of immediate and extended family members to prevent them from dealing with the consequences of their choices. Women will:
- Mortgage their homes to prevent a loved one from going to jail.
- Expend their retirement to prevent foreclosure or pay for college.
- Become a custodian to their abandoned or neglected grandchildren.
- Decrease their savings to pay their children’s expenses to keep their lives afloat.
