Mission Statement

Seedco is a national nonprofit organization that works with local partners to create economic opportunities for disadvantaged job seekers, workers and neighborhood entrepreneurs.

Description

Seedco uses practical, effective strategies to address the challenges confronting Americans who are struggling to leave poverty and achieve economic success. Working on these issues for more than two decades, we are leaders in implementing innovative, multi-partner initiatives that foster financial advancement and security.

Our work focuses on three critical goals for people seeking economic well-being:

  • Access: Our work connects people to what they need to make ends meet - an entry-level job, basic workplace skills and access to key benefits such as health or child care.
  • Security: We foster economic stability by helping people stay on the job, build new skills and take steps to become financially secure.
  • Mobility: Our programs provide long-term economic options for workers and entrepreneurs - through higher-level education and training, asset building and career advancement strategies.

While much of our work focuses on assisting individuals, we recognize that addressing poverty also requires a broader approach. To that end, we work with a broad spectrum of employers, government agencies and other institutions to improve the quality of jobs and promote the wider availability of critical workplace supports. And we invest in low-income communities in many areas of the country through our subsidiary Seedco Financial to create jobs, support neighborhood entrepreneurs and jumpstart economic opportunity.
