Just because you have a decent job, house and car doesn’t mean you’re financially set. Just ask Schnique and JC Dory, a White Settlement couple raising two kids.

They both have steady jobs, their home is pristine and there’s food on the table each night. But they’re constantly beating back debt, and are among the one in three North Texans who can’t last more than 90 days after a financial emergency.

That’s the focus of our series One Crisis Away. The Dorys keep their family on track with financial planning and faith.

KERA's series One Crisis Away looks at four North Texas families on the financial edge. In this profile, meet the Dory family. Schnique and JC are raising two kids in White Settlement. Even though they have steady jobs and a nice house, they're constantly beating back debt and working to curb their spending.
