Description
We believe we can end the cycle of poverty one family at a time by investing in educational and economic opportunity initiatives for individuals and families in need. Since 1994, TIS Foundation has provided critical support services and economic empowerment programs to families in crisis in the United States and various African nations. Through our partnership with AFRICAN COMMUNITY BRIDGE FOUNDATION (ACBF) in Africa, TIS has to brought purpose and hope to some of the most impoverished and underserved individuals in rural African communities-most especially women, children and youth. In Africa, we are developing a new generation of women entrepreneurs, providing skills training for jobs in emerging industries, and educating deserving children. Since inception, TIS has raised over $3.1M in cash and material donations to provide critical support services to over 10,000 children and youth every year.

Today, TIS is tackling many of the same issues in high-poverty communities in the United States. Our family and youth-centered initiatives are focused on filling gaps in critical community services necessary to move families from crisis to stability and growth, including community outreach, positive youth development initiatives and workforce development programs. Our goal is to leverage innovative industry partnerships to create seamless pathways to economic opportunity by connecting low-skilled workers to jobs, and offering skills training and entrepreneurship opportunities while addressing their most critical support needs.
