“Create Pathways Out Of Poverty“. Through Crews of California innovation and responsiveness to the LAX traveling publics philanthropic desires, Crews of California has added United Way donation boxes in each of their locations, committed to a significant company match for all donations as well as offer many valuable United Way services for all it’s employees.
United Way of Greater Los Angeles plays an important role in ending poverty across Los Angeles. Together, we’re:
* Increasing access to housing and healthcare
* Helping students graduate prepared for college and the workforce
* Providing motivated adults with the training and financial tools they need to thrive
With Crews of California’s help, we’ve made important progress on all three fronts.
For example, we’re using your financial support to move homeless families off the street. Because we know that permanent supportive housing is the most effective way to help chronically homeless people. But we’re not only providing housing . . . we’re also providing job training and mental health services to help them break the cycle of poverty.
In addition, we’ve launched innovative partnerships to decrease dropout rates and help students succeed at school. Among them is a partnership with middle school principals, whose leadership sets the standard for teachers, parent engagement, and student performance. And by recognizing that after-school programs provide a great opportunity to address academic success and graduation rates, we’ve amplified our support for these important programs.
To increase financial stability, we’re bringing businesses partners to the table, to help focus on job training and workforce development of growing fields like healthcare, logistics, and green jobs.
Through our partnerships with 165 remarkable nonprofits across L.A. County, we will achieve Pathways Out of Poverty’s ambitious goals.
