The mission of The Center for Working Families, Inc. (TCWFI) is to ensure economic success for Atlanta’s hard-working families and their children. To meet the intensive needs of the vulnerable families we serve, TCWFI bundles a wide range of essential services in one location. Through core pathway programs in our Family Economic Success Continuum, combined with leadership development programs and linkages to essential partners, TCWFI offers residents comprehensive help to become job-ready and competitive in today’s workforce, develop solid asset-building practices and explore entrepreneurial opportunities.
The pathway to success is different for each family.
TWCFI takes a personalized approach, pairing each participant with a Pathway Coach who serves as a mentor, advisor and partner on a co-designed journey towards self-sufficiency. TCWFI Pathway Coaches work with individuals to identify strengths, match interests with opportunities, set goals and strategize about how to overcome barriers and achieve better family outcomes. The comprehensiveness of the process gives participants emotional and practical support to realize their articulated goals and desires, and is essential to TCWFI’s success.
We believe that every family should live in a vibrant community, with access to quality services and unlimited potential to achieve their goals and desires.
