Mobility Matters Employment and Advancement for Working Parents-Executive Summary

Dec 06, 2021
  • Description

The W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) supported two innovative initiatives over a three year period that yielded some impressive results for single mothers and working families. The STEPS (Supporting Transitions to Employment for Parents) program served to help working parents enter the labor market, while the MOVE UP (Mobility and Opportunity for Valuable Employment by Upskilling Parents) program focused on providing low-income workers opportunities to move up within the labor market, thereby increasing income and job stability. Between 2015 and 2018, WKKF invested $11 million to support 13 different organizations to implement these two pilot programs. This summary overviews findings from those investments.
