"to equip K-12 students and their families for economic advancement."
"all people achieving financial success."
"a long-term investment in youth growing up in low-income households by equipping them with knowledge, tools, and assets to become financially independent adults."
The Job Foundation was founded in 2006 by Jennifer Corey-Brost. During her sophomore year of college, Jennifer purposely moved into a Section 8 apartment building where her and her roommates ministered 24/7 to individuals trapped in severe financial hardship.
A few years later, her and her husband, Mike Brost, faced their own hardship. Their first child, Job (JOBE), was stillborn. After experiencing the devastating loss, Jennifer could not imagine how her friends from the apartment building could recover from hardships with extensive help to re-establish self-sufficiency.
The couple sought to bring good out of their grief by establishing The Job Foundation which would address the financial needs Ms. Brost saw so clearly in that apartment building.
