Ending Poverty through Life Guides.

Our mission of community improvement by providing employment, education, training, and support services is aimed at ending poverty for those that have the desire and commitment to do so. We are certain that with attendance and persistence, our  Life Guides  program will help families achieve that. Obtaining skills and receiving the support necessary to obtain better jobs, safer housing, access to education, and financial literacy. The end goal is for families to no longer require government assistance; to be self sufficient, happy, and live a fulfilling life.



We offer adult education, job skills, fork lift certification, digital skills certifications, and other programs to help you achieve more! All of these programs are FREE!

Job Development

Sometimes finding a job can be tough, and even more so with barriers to entry (extended time away from work, criminal history, or disabilities).

Support Services

Whether it's getting to and from our programs, navigating paper work, finding housing, or just getting some financial coaching. We cover it all so families have a better chance at exiting poverty.

Saving companies (on average) between 35-50%

None of this would be possible without our community partners.
