Workforce Development and Economic Mobility
Since 2021, the Foundation has focused on funding workforce development programs that support upward economic mobility for residents living in greater Baltimore. In partnership with the Community Advisory Committee (CAC) and our community partners, we have come to understand that workforce development programs that seem to work best include case management for its participants given the numerous factors impacting one’s ability to develop both the job-specific and “soft” skills required to not only successfully find a job and earn a sustainable living wage but also retain it and ideally earn promotions through a career trajectory.
Therefore, as the Foundation continues to learn about what communities require through our community partners and the CAC, we look forward to supporting their efforts.
