Community Partners

Our community partners provide low-income individuals with essential social services like counseling, a social worker, or case manager to create a plan to transition the family out of poverty. We work in coordination with these organizations to provide ongoing essential services supporting multiple domains to remove financial obstacles to aching economic independence.
