What We Do

50 for 50

Since 1965, SHARE has been serving families in need in our community. That is a half of a century dedicated to working hard to fight poverty and educate low-income children, families and individuals with the goal of enabling them towards independence.

LADDER Program

In one of our efforts to address the root causes of poverty and need in the City’s Special Emphasis Neighborhoods, the Community Development division has partnered with several local residents, officials, employers and agencies to develop a Comprehensive Jobs Training/Improvement and Placement program called Lifelong Advancement through Diligence, Determination and Employment Resources (LADDER).
