Who Are Our Partners
Single Stop Board of Directors
Single Stop’s Board of Directors share a commitment to Single Stop’s mission and bring knowledge and expertise in both the non-profit and private sector.
Community Based Organizations
Single Stop helps communities break the intergenerational cycle of poverty – one family
at a time. Working through food pantries, schools, criminal justice and health care
centers, senior centers, and libraries, Single Stop connects families to the resources
they need to thrive. Improvements in family finance have been shown to keep families in
their homes and put food on the table. It also helps their children stay healthy and do
better in school. In fact, parental income is the #1 predictor of college graduation.
Single Stop works with veterans and their families to make the transition back to
civilian life more manageable. While 6.6 million veterans live in poverty, they are some
of the least likely to access the services available to them. Single Stop’s goal is to
change this landscape and make sure that all veterans and their families, regardless of
service and discharge status, have access to the resources, support, jobs, and education
they need to succeed in civilian life.
Colleges and Universities
Of the more than 20 million students enrolled in college, nearly half drop out. Many do
so because of financial barriers. Completing school is not merely an educational
achievement, but leads to better jobs and a more secure financial future. The
unemployment rate for those with an associate’s degree is just over 4%. Early reports
show that Single Stop can increase retention by double digits, helping families,
increasing the skilled labor force, and growing the national economy.
