Research shows it takes 2-5 Years for an individual to transition from poverty to self-sufficiency, our community must provide ongoing support throughout this journey. We created our Staying Ahead Network to provide ongoing support to our Getting Ahead graduates.  A Staying Ahead Network Facebook page updates Getting Ahead graduates with ongoing programs and assistance that are being provided throughout our community.

Graduates also have access to our Community Resource Directory, where they can search for resources and programs to assist them.
