Strengthening Neighborhoods & Families 

We recognize that poverty is a complicated and multi-faceted problem. We also believe in the need for significant changes in the systems and structures — laws, behaviors, attitudes, policies and institutions — that make a difference to people and their communities. To this end, the Strengthening Neighborhoods & Families Program includes initiatives that assist community members in overcoming tough barriers by providing concrete assistance like access to employment and workforce training.
