There are plenty of worthy charity organizations that raise funds to provide a specific service to the community. Food, shelter, health care, etc. - these non-profits deserve our support as we cope with the day-to-day needs of families struggling to make ends meet.

As we support these organizations, it's important that we not lose sight of the bigger challenge of resolving the tough issues that impact working families. That takes an organization with a capacity for research, analysis and public policy development, an organization with deep roots in the community, and an organization not afraid to stand up to powerful interests.

In Silicon Valley, that organization is Working Partnerships USA. No other local group has a better track record when it comes to developing and advocating for solutions that impact the working poor of this region. From healthcare for low-income kids to affordable housing, Working Partnerships has been a champion for innovative public policy and civic engagement.

As a community, we need to ensure that kids have enough to eat today, and that families have a place to stay the night. But we also have a obligation to come together and solve these issues. We can do both, but only with organizations like Working Partnership USA.
