Calling all supporters, donors, philanthropists, and do-gooders: We need your help NOW to bridge a funding gap! 

The need for our services has greatly increased. In fact, it almost doubled over the past year! At the same time, we're facing a gap in our funding, while one grant cycle comes to an end and another hasn't quite begun. 

Your support is urgently needed to keep our doors open, lights on, computers running, and staff paid. We will soon have to start turning clients away if we don't see a big showing of support from YOU. 

If you're seeing this page, you probably know who we are and what we do. If not, you can learn about us on our website at 

In short, we offer an array of programs and services to help very-difficult-to-employ individuals (i.e., those who are formerly homeless, incarcerated, and in recovery) in the San Fernando Valley to get trained and get jobs. 

What makes us unique and why clients our clients love us so much (and also why our 83% success rate is so high!) is that our services are 100% peer-led. We've been there. We know how hard it is. And we know what folks need to be successful in the workplace. 

But we can only accomplish this with your help. It isn't often that we turn to our supporters for straight-up dollars. If ever there was a time to donate, it's now. No amount is too little, and your donation is tax-deductible! Every dollar will go directly towards our Job Readiness Program, which wraps our most vulnerable clients up in services and support so they can get back to work. 

In the coming days, we will be sharing their faces and their stories with you. I know they will inspire you, and I hope you will consider showing them that they are worthy of your support. 

Thank you so much in advance for your kindness and generosity, 

Maria ("Alex") Alexander Executive Director
