A non-profit group based in Pittsburgh recently launched programming aimed at preparing low-income parents for success in the work force.
The organization, Pennsylvania Women Work, received a $500,000 grant from the Department of Labor that allows them to focus on young adults with children that are living in poverty.
The program, GROW “Generations Realizing Occupational Wellness,” focuses on those who are unemployed, underemployed or lacking sufficient income, career skills or budget managing skills to provide access to a better family life.
Based off of a flagship program “New Choices”—the statewide, state-funded program that focused on single-mothers and displaced homemakers, GROW offers a gender-neutral focus that welcomes both young men and women to receive the training.
