Employment and Financial Stability Program

Nearly 40% of Sarasota County households earn too much to qualify for traditional assistance programs but not enough to comfortably pay their bills, save money, and build financial sustainability. Simply put, these ALICE households (Asset-Limited, Income-Constrained, Employed) are stuck in Survival Mode.

JFCS’s Employment & Financial Advancement Program aims to help these families get unstuck.

To Qualify

Applicants must meet all three of the requirements to qualify.
