Theory of Change: If we help underserved individuals increase income/resources and access healthcare, then individuals and families will have a greater chance of being economically self-sufficient and contributing to their success in life.
Program Goal: Individuals are trained in relevant job/employment skills, obtain employment, build financial assets, access health services, and improve health. Additionally, programs provide for the economic growth of underserved communities through social enterprises and systemic improvements in service delivery.
At The Boeing Company, we believe that advancing the economic well-being and health of our most vulnerable residents gives them a chance at a new beginning. Through investments in select, innovative programs that deliver tangible results, we can give substantive help to individuals, families and communities that need it the most.
In the Puget Sound area, Boeing invests in programs that:
- Support low-income Puget Sound residents to:
- Improve employability and access employment through workforce development, social enterprises, small business development, and job training in high-demand sectors such as manufacturing and health care.
- Increase income and resources through wage progression strategies and access to public benefits.
- Build assets through savings programs and financial services linked to financial education.
- Improve health outcomes of low-income and vulnerable populations through community-based prevention projects that engage cross-sector partners in promoting healthy lifestyles.
- Address health and human services issues at a systems level through collaborative initiatives that address emerging needs, foster innovation, integrate technologies and business practices, improve outcomes, and/or streamline services.
Boeing makes investments to health and human service nonprofits in King, Pierce, and Snohomish County.
