Our Work

EMPath’s metric-based, mentor-led, incentivized program model offers a viable roadmap that is recalibrating the way governments, nonprofit organizations, and policy makers approach their work with low-income families. For almost a decade, our Bridge to Self-Sufficiency® and the Mobility Mentoring® service platform, have been guiding low-income families toward economic independence. Our participants have used our tools to increase their incomes, secure permanent housing, attain education, and establish themselves in careers that help them break the cycle of poverty. Learn more.
