Small Business Development

 

Each family is enrolled in business classes upon entering Abide. The course lasts for four weeks and is held twice a week. Abide’s Business Instructor and Assistant Business Instructor guide the caregivers through the course and provide one-on-one support to each caregiver as they develop their business plans. Caregivers gain the skills they need to be able to support themselves and their families independently after they leave Abide. The goal is to empower the families to be self-sufficient by giving them the tools they need to lift themselves out of poverty.

Upon graduation, each family receives a small grant to help them start up their small businesses. If they work hard and are successful with their business, they may also be eligible to receive a second grant.
