Six Nonprofits Selected for Competitive Fair Chance Partnership
The Leaders of Fair Chance's Newest Nonprofit Partners (L-R): Anna Bernanke, Jeffery Tribble Jr., Stacie Reimer,  Julius Green, Joyce Madyun,  and Brandon Johns.
We are proud to announce that six new nonprofits have been selected to receive a Fair Chance partnership. The organizations selected provide a range of serves such as legal support, job readiness training, and mentoring to help youth achieve educational benchmarks. 
Each year, Fair Chance selects a cohort of promising nonprofits working with children and youth in poverty across Washington, DC. These rigorously vetted organizations receive over 350 hours of one-on-one support in organizational management, at no cost. Results show that within five years of receiving a Fair Chance partnership, nonprofits report median increases of 50% in both the numbers of children and youth they serve and the amount of revenue they raise to support their operations.
