It's still true: CitySquare needs investors who will remain consistent in their financial and spiritual commitment to see us grow in effectiveness and impact on quality of life issues among thousands of our struggling, low-income neighbors who visit us each year.
We're refining our "portfolio" of products to increase our effectiveness.
Our new Opportunity Center brings a white hot focus on jobs and employment improvement to South Dallas/Fair Park. The resources for training, employing and sustaining financial improvement are in place. We know that this new focus will open doors for better lives to the people who are ready and willing to seize the new opportunities that we are now able to offer.
We need special investors to partner with us to sustain this new intensity at a time when the job market is improving.
We need investors who will:
1) Make regular financial contributions to CitySquare. We can't work well without consistent funding.
2) Volunteer to serve as a "coach" for people entering the workforce.
3) Volunteer as an instructor in our new get ready to work "boot camp."
4) Volunteer to be a "buddy" to a person who is in training as they move into employment.
5) Offer up jobs for the men and women we train. Allow our team to partner with you and your company to help make these eager employees successful.
6) Make sure your current and new employees, who qualify, file for the Earned Income Tax Credit. See to it that your company and employees regard the EITC as a "company benefit" that rewards hard work.
I'd love to talk to you about these investment opportunities! Shoot me an email (ljames@CitySquare.org) or call me at 469.904.7016.
