PVJOBS is most grateful to the generous support of foundations that recognize the vision and potential of our life-changing programs. We consider them our closest partners and cannot thank them enough.
The California Wellness Foundation
Rather than focusing on medical treatment, The California Wellness Foundation works to prevent health problems resulting from violence, teen pregnancy, poverty and other social issues. The California Wellness Foundation defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Wellness is the ability for people and communities to reach their fullest potential in the broadest sense.
L.A. Workforce Funder Collaborative
Eight different organizations make up the Los Angeles Workforce Funder Collaborative (LAWFC), with one common vision -- to create a thriving workforce system that meets the needs of all in Greater Los Angeles. The LAWFC was launched in 2007 to address critical challenges facing our workforce development system by leveraging funding to invest in workforce development while working together to affect policy and systems change.
The LAWFC has chosen a sector approach to ensure its investments prepare people for employment in industries where jobs exist, are not likely to be outsourced, and provide good incomes and opportunities for career advancement. These sectors are healthcare and allied health, logistics/goods movement, and construction and building trades. By investing in these three sectors, LAWFC aims to create a regional environment in which job security and career advancement opportunities are readily available to low-wage workers while also meeting the workforce needs of those key industry sectors.
We are humbled by the LAWFC’s confidence in PVJOBS, and we’re excited to play a part in this ground breaking initiative. Please visit laworkforcefunders.org for more information.
United Way is a worldwide network, with a presence in 45 countries and territories, including nearly 1,300 community organizations in the U.S. United Way advances the common good, creating opportunities for a better life for all by focusing on the three key building blocks of education, income and health. The United Way movement creates long lasting community change by addressing the underlying causes of problems that prevent progress in these areas.
LIVE UNITED is a call to action for everyone to become a part of the change. United Way of Los Angeles has been a PVJOBS supporter for many years. Their ongoing support has enabled PVJOBS to serve more individuals annually, assisting our organization in developing meaningful career paths.
The Weingart Foundation
The Weingart Foundation focuses its grant making on programs that address the needs of the under-served as well as the general community. Over the past four decades, the Foundation authorized grants of nearly $900 million to support a variety of social services and educational and community programs in the Southern California region. The Foundation continues to be a major philanthropic institution serving the needs of those in the Southland.
The Weingart Foundation has been most gracious in their support of the PVJOBS Capital Plan. It is with their support that we were able to renovate our new building and create a permanent home for PVJOBS. We are proud to have them as a partner.
