Officials at 90Works established a program with a goal of helping people who are struggling financially or otherwise. Their goal is for individuals to become self-sufficient in 90 days. 90Works coordinates housing, jobs, transportation, safety and health care, which is what Cate Jordan, Executive Director, calls the basics for survival. 90Works has a 90% success rate getting people self-sufficient in 90 days.
The goal is to support everyone in our community. “Community Foundations all around our state play a vital role in supporting individuals in need of basic social services. We at CFNWF are pleased to be able to give back to our community through this grant”, said Justin Tate, Board Chairman for the foundation.
