About Center for Working Families

In partnership with community residents, The Center for Working Families, Inc. (TCWFI) works to provide a combination of job placement, job development and asset-building programs to meet the needs of families in the six neighborhoods clustered around Atlanta's Turner Field (also known as Neighborhood Planning Unit V or NPU-V). Launched in the fall – more... of 2005, TCWFI is designed to bundle these services in a family-friendly way through intensive pathway coaching and tailored classes, and by linking multiple service providers in partnership around residents. Recognizing that the greatest asset in the community is its residents, TCWFI integrates these services with strategies that build resident capacity and social capital. This integration occurs through two programs: the Center for Working Families Program and the Community Building Program. The Center for Working Families Program (CWF) includes three strategies. Its Moving to Work Pathway helps unemployed and underemployed residents secure and maintain jobs that offer family supporting wages and benefits. Its Moving to Wealth Pathway helps employed residents build savings and assets and its Fatherhood Initiative provides intensive mentoring and coaching to reconnect fathers to their families and community. All strategies work toward linking CWF participants to the full array of TCWFI programs and services designed to increase income, employment, and assets. The Community Building Program (CBP) nurtures leadership among residents, leading to increased capacity so that residents become the primary change agents and, consequently, the primary beneficiaries of community transformation. – lessMore from ZoomInfo »
