Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Center for Labor and Community Research

Chicago, Illinois



The consulting and research organization collaborates with community groups, human-services agencies, educational institutions and businesses to coordinate strategies that allow low-income individuals to receive social supports while accessing educational and employment opportunities. This two-year capacity-building grant supports expansion to four additional cities of the center’s network-based approach for moving people out of poverty.
