Programs: Education program:
our program gives low-income women the tools, knowledge, and self-confidence necessary to compete for better jobs, seek raises, promotions, and eventually earn an adequate income. Each single mom we help transition from welfare to adequate income saves our community between $5,000 and $20,000 annually.

Mission:
People Helping People is dedicated to reducing the number of children living in poverty by teaching low-income women, primarily single mothers, how to earn an adequate income through stable employment that pays a living wage.
Results:
Each year People Helping People asks graduates to participate in a survey measuring their employment status. Last year, graduates reported that: 92% were employed full-time, 59% were with the same employer for more than 3 years, 60% received at least one raise with an average of $1.30 per hour, 93% have health insurance offered through their employer, 40% received employee of the month or other employment recognition, and 40% completed or were enrolled in programs to further their education or training. Program completion and survey statistics are summarized in our annual report, published in August.
