CFED, with support from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation, is excited to announce the selection of six individuals to participate in the Platforms for Prosperity Integration Fellowship. These individuals—who are senior leaders at their organizations and are already recognized for their commitment to making their communities more financially secure—provide workforce development services to their low-income clients. Through the Fellowship, they will use Building Financial Capability: A Planning Guide for Integrated Services, developed by CFED in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families, to further integrate financial capability services into their workforce development programs, enhancing both employment and financial outcomes for their clients.
The six inaugural Platforms for Prosperity Fellows include:
- Jasmine Miller, The Center for Working Families, Atlanta, GA
- Matt King, YWCA Seattle, Seattle WA
- Dan Rhoton, Hopeworks, Camden, NJ
- Andy Finke, DC Central Kitchen, Washington, DC
- Robynne Rose-Haymer, Goodwill Sacramento Valley and Northern Nevada, Sacramento, CA
- David Bolton, Foothills Family Resources in partnership with United Way of Greenville County, Slater, SC
Through the Fellowship, which will run through September 2016, participants will receive individualized technical assistance from CFED and will also take part in peer learning through virtual meetings and site visits to successful financial capability integration sites. CFED will keep the field updated about the progress and accomplishments of the Fellows.
