Why Income?
Poverty is a small word that weighs heavily on the shoulders of many North Texans. So we support the kind of programs that give the members of our community a chance for a brighter future.

Our Focus on Income Covers Three Distinct Areas

By 2020, our goal is to move 250,000 people out of poverty. Last year, we invested $7 million and supported programs that put our residents on the path to financial stability.

Economic Mobility

We help residents improve their abilities to budget, reduce debt and monitor/improve their credit. And we offer online strategies that help families get, manage and keep more of their hard-earned money.

Career Pathways

We don’t just provide skills training and credentials that lead to better paying jobs, we connect applicants with prospective employers through work readiness courses, placement services and small business programs.

Basic Needs

We fund programs that address our community’s most immediate needs, providing food, shelter, safety and more in emergency situations.

School that Pays $18/Hr

Working with area employers, our Pathways to Work program provides post-secondary skills training and credentials that lead to better paying jobs. Watch how PerScholas opens doors to a real career and a brighter future.
