Higher Expectations’ Two Generation Initiative

Background

The Higher Expectations’ Two Generation Initiative is a 2-year StriveTogether-funded project that aims to support unemployed or underemployed mothers with young children, by offering intentional and aligned access to workforce training programs, high quality childcare and holistic supportive services in Racine County. A pilot cohort of the initiative will provide a training program with ongoing support, commitments from employers to give these individuals career opportunities with growth potential, trauma-informed program development, and referrals to other support services to address additional barriers.

The ICFW is conducting a mixed-methods evaluation to support program development, assess program implementation, promote quality improvement, and evaluate impact.
