Is your region looking for a successful and innovative program designed to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty?
Multi-Gen programs excel at addressing the needs of both parents and children, with the goal of creating opportunities that lead to family-sustaining wages and a strengthened family unit.
This research-driven model has proven successful with some of the most difficult-to-serve populations. According to the Urban Institute, “Investments in multi-generational models could significantly reduce or even eliminate the investment required to support third and subsequent generations.”
How does it work? What do participants walk away with when the program is done?
Multi-Gen programming brings parents and their children together for job readiness, academic instruction and family mealtime. We have specific goals we are committed to helping adults, children and families walk away with:
Adults: Improve job readiness skills and employability through an employer-driven curriculum geared toward high-priority occupations. Successful completion of the program often leads to recognized credentials and certifications, and job placement often follows.
Children: Strengthen education and behavior through age-appropriate, activity-based learning and support.
Families: Develop and practice positive communication, parenting and life skills.
