Statistics

ONE GOOD JOB IS THE SUREST PATH OUT OF POVERTY

Lancaster City has a 30% poverty rate. It would take just 3,000 Thriving Wage Jobs for low-income heads of household to cut poverty in half in the city. Lancaster Works and ASSETS will support the creation of at least 10% of these jobs by 2020.

Employment in supportive, mission-driven environments can have a serious return on investment.

Public benefit payments to employees decreased from 71% to 24%

The share of workers living in stable housing increased from 15% to 53%

For every dollar spent on supportive employment, the return on that investment was $2.23 for society as a whole.
