Financial Opportunity Center opening celebration on Thursday, July 26

SCI-West is excited to celebrate the opening of the West Philadelphia Financial Opportunity Center (FOC). Join us at PWDC, this Thursday July 26th at 10 am. Hear from LISC Director Michael Rubinger, representatives of our supporters from State Farm, Citi and Walmart, and our local FOC program partners UCD and APM.

The center will provide career and personal financial support to increase the financial bottom line for low-to-moderate income individuals. From 2012-13, the center aims to engage 300 residents, improve the income of 200 individuals, and place 60 people in jobs.

The FOC will build on the existing work of the Skills Initiative, a SCI West Signature Project led by UCD. The Skills Initiative is a workforce development program in West Philadelphia that combines on-the-job training with a community college education to offer medical field career paths.
