Working Families Thrive
1 in 7 individuals in Larimer County are living in poverty and 69% of these people age 25 and older are employed at least part-time. The need for resources to address employment barriers, educational opportunities, and job training continues to grow in order to meet the increasing skills gap seen by our local business community.
For example, we have over 13,780 families living below the self-sufficiency standard (2013). Each dollar you invest in job training moves families toward self sufficiency and returns nine dollars to the community through increased tax revenue and decreased social service spending.
Together, we will help more working families achieve long-term self-sufficiency while also strengthening our local economy with a more skilled and stable workforce.
What if your dollars made the difference?
