07.12.2016

natalie miltonFamily Footprint, a nonprofit founded by 2016 MSW graduate Natalie Milom, received a $4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor to provide middle to high skill advanced manufacturing training to parents and quality child care in the same location.  The grant also provides case management, soft skills training, paid work experience, and assistance with employment placement.

Family Footprint utilizes a two-generation approach to partner with families to provide pathways out of poverty with particular attention to early childhood development, health, social supports, employment pathways, and asset-building.  Collaborating with Help Me Grow SC, BabyNet, and SC Thrive, the organization ensures that the children receive all the supports needed to encourage healthy development and ensure that they are ready for Kindergarten and excel in school.  Family Footprint also serves as a Benefit Bank site to ensure parents can access the supports needed to stabilize as they work towards self-sufficiency.  They are also collaborating with various community agencies to help clients build assets and increase financial literacy skills.
