ESTABLISHED: 1996

MISSION: Cincinnati Works will partner with all willing and capable people living in poverty to assist them in advancing to economic self-sufficiency through employment.

SERVING OUR COMMUNITY: COVID-19 has only increased the hurdles facing the working poor, making the mission of Cincinnati Works even more essential. For 25 years, we have been a leader in ending poverty through employment— but a job is just the beginning. Our comprehensive approach includes job readiness training, connections to employer partners, legal advocacy, and financial coaching. We provide individualized, 1-on-1, personal and financial coaching—free for life. Our coaches guide Members (clients) in overcoming barriers to get a job, keep a job, and advance on the job. We help them to chart their course, jumpstart their careers, build financial stability and then celebrate their success in breaking the cycle of generational poverty. We also contract with employers to provide our coaching services to their frontline workforce.
