Partnership to improve families’ financial well-being - Pathways LA

Partnership to improve families’ financial well-being


Pathways LA and LIFT-Los Angeles are joining forces to identify and refer eligible parents to each organization’s programs in support of our shared mission to promote economically resilient families.

LIFT-Los Angeles provides its members with education planning, financial coaching and career exploration services. LIFT staff will refer families in need of child care to Pathways LA while they participate in a qualifying activity such as job training or an educational program. They will also refer parents interested in becoming licensed early care and education professionals to the Child Care Initiative Project.

Pathways LA will refer families interested in LIFT’s financial empowerment coaching program. The coaching program teaches parents about saving and budgeting, and it provides guidance on credit building and rebuilding. The program also supports parents as they explore educational options, such as ESL and GED courses and job training programs. Parents will identify their marketable skills and receive guidance that will improve their career search outcomes.

To be referred to LIFT, please contact our Resource & Referral Department at 213-427-2710. To learn about partnering with Pathways LA, contact Malena Loucks at 213-427-1665.
