How Our Programs Empower The Community
It seems like every day we hear stories about the challenges of living in Silicon Valley – astronomical rents, increasing income disparity, the limitations of our educational system- great challenges abound. On the other hand, we live in the valley of innovation. However, significant pockets of poverty exist in the shadows of some of the greatest companies in the world.
Through experience, Able Works has found key leverage points that unlock the high potential in resourced challenged communities.
FutureProfits targets under-resourced high school students at-risk of being caught in generational cycles of poverty. Through this program, we teach about fundamental financial paradigms, life and job skills, and combat myths about money that can be detrimental to their futures.
LiveAble applies a unique and proven approach to bring economic self-sufficiency to female head of households and young couples ages 18-30. We help them move from merely surviving to thriving.
