Getting Ahead Program 2017 – 2018 is Underway. Volunteer mentors are needed!

Getting AheadĀ  Program:

Our GA program 2017-2018 is now underway thanks to funding awarded by a Society of St. Vincent de Paul Friends of the Poor grant. We also obtained $700 in Bishop Ahr grant funds to purchase more books to educate community members and organizations about the SVdP Systemic Change initiative and the Getting Ahead Program.

The long term goal of the Getting Ahead Program and the Systemic Change initiative is to build communities where everyone can live well by increasing the number of Getting Ahead graduates and forming community partnerships with program participants, other community members, businesses, and social service type agencies to work together to build resources that will provide support for families struggling to work their way out of poverty.
