Jenzabar Helps One Family Combat Family Homelessness With Higher Education
Jenzabar Supports Celebration of One Family’s Work Helping the Homeless
Boston, MA – April 29, 2019 — Jenzabar Inc., a leading technology innovator in higher education system solutions, is supporting One Family’s Annual Breakfast Celebration which is being held on April 30th to raise awareness of the crisis of family homelessness in Massachusetts.
One Family works to prevent homelessness and break the cycle of family poverty in Massachusetts by promoting pathways to economic independence through advocacy, education, and innovation. The organization’s signature initiative – the One Family Scholars program – supports low-income single parents as they earn college degrees leading to careers that can truly sustain a family. The breakfast will feature inspirational stories from some of the remarkable people One Family serves as they work to achieve economic security for themselves and their families.
“Jenzabar and One Family, Inc. have worked together for over a decade, helping families experiencing or at-risk of homelessness in Massachusetts create brighter futures. During that time the Foundation has continuously donated to One Family in support of our work,” said Valerie Paric, Executive Director of One Family. “This generosity has made a real and lasting difference in the lives of the families we serve.”
“At Jenzabar we believe in the transformative powers of education and that education creates opportunities for everyone to discover and develop their inner masterpieces,” said Ling Chai Maginn, president and CEO of Jenzabar. “We are proud to support a program as impactful as One Family Scholars. The 75% graduation rate for One Family Scholars last year was more than two-and-a-half times the 28% graduation rate for single mothers in college nationally. And 92% of graduates now live in stable housing.”
