The Collaborative to Advance Stability connects community-based groups in North Philadelphia and across the city in increasing community outreach and engagement efforts.
Campaign for Working Families (CWF), the region’s largest free tax prep provider, is leading the collaborative effort to increase access to critical services including benefits enrollment, financial counseling, and legal services.
Why We Invested
Campaign for Working Families serves more than 20,000 people annually. While they have found creative ways to partner with organizations to offer valuable services, impactful partnerships require resources.
Through the Family Stability Challenge, the Collaborative to Advance Stability is building processes for referrals, increase outreach in hard-to-serve communities, and develop a tracking system to understand what’s working. Serving as the community hub, Beech Community Services is working with deep-rooted North Philadelphia-based organizations to bring awareness and services directly to communities.
Targeting communities where the poverty rate is over 45%, Campaign for Working Families and its partners will provide city-wide services and increase outreach efforts to meet Philadelphians most in need. Connecting North Philadelphians and beyond to a trusted network of organizations will help increase access to benefits and put money back in people’s pockets.
