  • Nonprofit Focuses on Employment Training and Business and Community Development

    Nov 22, 2013 by

    Impact Services Corporation, located in Philadelphia’s Kensington neighborhood, is one of the largest nonprofit providers of employment and training services in Pennsylvania. However, Impact is unusual among nonprofits in this field because it works closely with area businesses and creates jobs through community development projects and Impact-owned businesses.

    Impact Services Corporation helped to develop Aramingo Crossings, a 25-acre $45 million shopping center that created over 600 jobs. The center, which was built on the vacant site of a former pipe factory, is anchored by Walmart and Lowe’s. Source: CASCADE: NO. 80, SPRING/SUMMER 2012

    Impact provides citywide employment and training services, primarily serving ex-offenders, veterans, and women receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). Data on these populations are provided later (see Figure). Impact has helped over 23,000 individuals enter the workforce since it was established 38 years ago. From July 1, 2010, to June 30, 2011, Impact placed 1,197 individuals in jobs.
