Low-income workers can become successful business owners, create jobs for others, leave poverty and build assets, yet have limited access to support, training and tools to help break the cycle of poverty and become prosperous, participating community members. With 10 years of research, Women’s Initiative has proven that their 22,000 clients are increasing their incomes and assets, providing jobs and creating more vibrant neighborhoods. EARN is a nationally-recognized pioneer in helping workers build assets and escape poverty into home ownership, business ownership and higher education. Learn how a laser focus on their mission and core competencies, plus strong partnerships have enabled these organizations to accomplish far more than the sum of their parts, successfully and permanently lifting people out of poverty, while uplifting their communities in the process.
