We believe that no one service is enough to end intergenerational poverty. People are complicated. They can't be reduced to the least common denominator.
That's why we provide our participants with three years of coaching and opportunities across four core service areas: income, assets, wellness and connections.
First, we help our participants get a job and map a long-term career plan. Then, we show them how to grow their savings, build their credit, set a budget and overcome legal barriers.
But we don't stop with these simple economic solutions.
Physical and emotional health issues, and limited social networks, also keep people in poverty. That's why we offer tailored wellness services and assistance establishing the community networks necessary to build a career, raise a family, and make positive change.
This holistic, flexible approach allows us to end poverty permanently for more than 1,700 people each year. And we all benefit.
