In November of 2019, Imagine LA embarked on its Financial Wellness Pathways initiative to identify for single headed families viable living wage career pathways with childcare and financial literacy skills and tools to achieve financial independence.
As a result we have created our new Economic Mobility Program (EMP) which provides families with workforce development that leads to living wage careers, paired with the reliable childcare and financial fitness coaching that families need to build economic mobility, financial independence, and a lasting exit from poverty. The 4 key components of EMP are: Living-Wage Career Pathways, Affordable Childcare, Financial Fitness, and navigation of the complex social benefit system. The EMP is both a part of our Family Partnership Model and a service that can be potentially utilized by clients of other homelessness and poverty services agencies.
The Economic Mobility Program Manager will be responsible for overseeing the Economic Mobility Program as part of Imagine LA’s Partnership Model, creating and evaluating the program, and potentially growing this into an ILA service unit regionally and beyond.
Imagine LA is a dynamic and growing nonprofit organization dedicated to mobilizing the community and building equity to end the cycle of family homelessness and intergenerational poverty. Our mission: Together with families, we transform lives by building relationships, wellbeing and economic mobility. Our innovative Family Partnership Model works with families who have experienced homelessness, or are at increased risk of experiencing homelessness, and partners with them to build the skills, habits, and relationships needed for every member of the family to thrive.
Imagine LA is a smart, collaborative, and passionate environment that combines the best practices of business and social services. Our core values: Love, Teamwork, Equity, Compassion, Accountability. Our culture is warm, encouraging, and “professionally playful”, and our humanity always comes first. We love coffee and food (no, really) as well as embracing staff wellness (like the exploration of colored breathing – true story!). We are actively advancing our Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion work, and intentionally invest in staff advancement (you’ll have a “growth budget” for personal and professional development).
