We believe when a woman is given an opportunity to earn income she will invest in her children first – a strategy shared by organizations around the world. We also understand that women from low-income communities face major barriers to economic success for themselves and their children.
We created our Buena Fe Working Families programs to address barriers faced by employees from low-income communities. Our programs support families while developing tools for success in the workplace and labor market.
We offer these programs in a supportive work environment, which eliminates the isolation faced by many low-income women, while peers provide support and encouragement. Many of our employees have achieved fluency in English, earned GEDs, acquired citizenship, and learned how to advocate for a quality education for their children in Albuquerque Public Schools. Additionally, two employees sit on our board of directors, which ensures that as we grow and expand, we remain true to our founding mission.
