To give our community a reliable foundation, we empower our neighbors to overcome financial hardship and reduce homelessness — or prevent it altogether.
We believe everyone should have the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to become financially stable. By connecting our neighbors to job training, employment opportunities and career counseling options, we help create an opportunity for independence and a better quality of life.
