AWC's holistic approach focuses on neighborhood revitalization, the creation of stable homes, workforce development programming to move families to economic self-sufficiency, and the creation of greater awareness and engagement by the community. The Essential Support Program provides beds, furniture and other basic home goods to those leaving homelessness, fleeing domestic abuse, recovering from disaster, or simply living without the basics that make a home a home. The Workforce Development Program provides wraparound support to job seekers, and the Neighborhood Partnerships Program works within communities to help residents revitalize those communities from within. Employing on-the-ground programs and services, and developing large-scale solutions to root causes, AWC's mission is an ambitious one: to end poverty.
AWC has continued to provide vital basic need items to thousands of children and adults in the region, adjusting its delivery model to ensure continuity of service in accordance with public health guidelines. It is now able to offer no-contact drop offs for donated items and to host clients for no-contact appointments that allow them to receive essential items for their homes. It has expanded the scope of its workforce development programming, providing support to job seekers as they face an increasingly challenging market.
