Your gift to Solutions at Work transforms lives. Here’s how:

 

Expand the number of people we serve ($25,000)

Solutions at Work used to be open every other Saturday.  When we stopped opening on Saturdays we lost two-thirds of our participants. While we have added new members since that time, we anticipate at least tripling our members if we were open on Saturdays. If you wish to designate your donation please email the business manager here, otherwise thank you for contributing to this effort.

Achieve a Living Wage for all staff ($20,000)

As an organization that is committed to raising people out of homelessness and destitution we are ethically committed to championing a Living Wage for all.  As a part of our commitment to this goal we are working toward an existing objective that all staff be paid a living wage. Your $20,000 gift will ensure that all staff at Solutions At Work will be paid a Living Wage, regardless of position or title. If you wish to have your donation go toward this specific objective, please contact the business manager here, otherwise mail your contribution to Solutions At Work.
