Support our Emergency Fund

As the economy shifts in response to the global pandemic, we have augmented our services to provide emergency assistance to our participants and alumni. We ask for your support today to expand upon the work we are doing and allow us to quickly grow capacity so that we may increase the assistance we are able to provide. Every dollar makes a difference in these difficult times and helps keep our participants — those employed, recently laid off, or in the midst of their job search — on their pathway out of poverty. Thank you.
