Families Forward Initiative

An initiative of The McKnight Foundation to help low-wage working parents gain access to better jobs through training and education. The initiative was launched in September 2001 and ended in 2006. Reports prevent evaluation results, including findings about participants, their experiences combining training with work and family responsibilities, and their job outcomes. They also highlight findings about what it takes for providers to offer skill development programs that meet the needs of workers and employers.
