In the Community

We want to create sustainable, long-term economic empowerment in the communities in which we work and live. To do that, we support projects and organizations that tackle financial stability, family sustaining employment and housing holistically, because our research shows these core areas can have a bigger and longer term impact. Our annual Day of Giving Back has been another way we have invested in local communities, doing everything from preparing meals, teaching professional workshops, painting playgrounds and more.
