Are we Getting Ahead
with Getting Ahead? 

The commencement of these classes has already fostered stronger partnerships and participation from community members and organizations. Across Butler County, we have several groups that have committed to donate meals, or to volunteer for other parts of the program to make it successful.


Similar models to Getting Ahead have found that 70% of participants reported an increase in:

  • Social capital

  • Commitment to volunteering in community

  • Access to reliable transportation


Meanwhile, an average of 35% of participants reported:

  • Paying off credit

  • Opening savings account

  • Enrolling in new education

  • Finding new employment
