ADVANCING ECONOMIC EQUITY

Our economic advancement programs

GIVE TO UNITED WAY

Your gift keeps Marylanders in homes, helps kids in school, and provides access to healthy food and jobs that pay the bills.

We help people gain the skills they need to achieve stable employment.

We work with those who are eligible for government benefits to reduce their need for assistance and remove the obstacles keeping them from a job that pays the bills.

Our programs include:

  • GED instruction
  • Job readiness training
  • Career mentoring
  • Apprenticeships

Some of our job training programs are for those who want to work in the healthcare field as CNAs, GNAs, LPNs, and phlebotomy. Read more about these programs and volunteer opportunities for those who want to help job seekers here.

Our workforce programs also include specialized work with veterans and people who are experiencing homelessness.

We help people gain the self-sufficiency we all desire and deserve—and that will allow them to attain a stable, healthy life for themselves and their families.
