"As the director of non-profit, Hopematch, I am always looking for new partnerships that will enhance the services we provide to working class families. The Kaizen Foundation has filled in a gap we were missing in giving our families access to financial literacy and support. We partnered with them because of their approach: it is personalized and specific, with no judgment. We are excited for the people participating in their great program and appreciate how much they sought advice in how to authentically serve our families. We looking forward to working together in the future."

- Erin Blackmore, Director, Hopematch

"Partnerships are a huge part of what makes Common Heart possible. We are about more than food pantries and economic empowerment. We are about community and relationships; neighbors serving neighbors. Our partnership with the Kaizen Foundation allows our neighbors to receive financial literacy education in a safe space with folks who care and will walk alongside them as they work towards stability in their lives."

- Elizabeth Carpenton, Engagement Director
