Poverty steals hopes and dreams.

Transition to Success,® restores them—& brighter futures.

Throughout American history our society has largely viewed poverty as a choice, an unwillingness to work hard and pursue the American dream.

This lens, seeing poverty as a series of bad decisions, a weakness and flaw of character, serves to perpetuate the shame, stigma and generational cycle of economic insecurity. The common myth in America is that with moral fortitude, grit and picking oneself up by the bootstraps, anyone can reach their American dream.

They are wrong. Transition to Success provides real solutions, moving people from poverty to self-sufficiency.


Treating conditions, changing lives.

The reality is that poverty is caused directly by the circumstances an individual or family faces. Circumstances often beyond anyone’s control. A hungry child and the senior choosing between food and medicine are innocent victims. With low wages and limited benefits, even the hardest working among us find themselves struggling.

Poverty is not something to “rise above” any more than exposure to lead or asbestos. Just as we treat these conditions without judgment, so too must we treat the condition of poverty.
