Community Need

Thousands of families in Southern Arizona are just getting by at various levels of stability, making less than $20K a year. Many are lacking the resources and confidence to successfully reach an improved quality of life on their own.

Our Response

IMPACT's Moving People FORWARD initiative will provide people with career training and employment in high-demand fields with earnings starting at $40-50K per year AND together, we can do it in less than six months! Our new Client Advocate will work with our families to help them identify individual challenges and goals. Clients will also be supported by a new corps of Community Navigators; specially trained volunteers who will mentor and assist each family to connect with our community partners every step of the way!
