We are pleased to share that we are the recipients of a $30,000 grant from the Lincoln Financial Foundation to support the continued operation of our West Philadelphia Skills Initiative (WPSI), our cohort-based, employer-driven job training program. The Lincoln Financial Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Lincoln Financial Group, and awards grants to hundreds of nonprofits each year that empower and improve the lives of people in their communities through programs including human services, education, and financial wellness. This new support pushes total contributions from Lincoln Financial Foundation to WPSI to over $200,000 in total funds since 2013.

Our sincere thanks to the Lincoln Financial Foundation for their continued support, which will help us build our momentum to serve more local jobseekers and employer partners and expand the reach of our work.
