We’d like to once again thank the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey for their continued support of our West Philadelphia Skills Initiative. This month, the United Way gifted us with another $45,000 to fuel the operations of the Skills Initiative. The United Way has been a longtime ally in our work to connect talented West Philadelphians to life-changing jobs at University City institutions and across the city of Philadelphia, and has offered over $400,000 in operating support for the Skills Initiative since its inception.
The United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey is part of a national network of more than 1,300 locally governed organizations that work to create lasting positive changes in communities and in people’s lives. United Way engages the community to identify the underlying causes of the most significant local issues, develops strategies and pulls together financial and human resources to address them, and measures the results. United Way is advancing the common good in Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey by positively impacting the lives of people throughout the region in the areas of education, financial stability, and health.
We offer our deepest thanks to the United Way for all they do to support our work.
