How can Utahns help reduce the number of children living in poverty? People Helping People is an organization that helps families break the cycle of poverty for their children. Their goal is to teach women, primarily single mothers, how they can build better futures for themselves and their children by becoming, and remaining, successfully employed.

People Helping People's unique employment approach helps women gain the knowledge and self-confidence necessary to compete for better jobs, advance in their careers, and become financially self-sufficient.

The group offers workshops that are taught from the perspective of an employer to provide valuable insight on what is expected from employees. Also, one-on-one mentoring is provided to help clients create employment tools packets, identify appropriate jobs, prepare a resume, and receive interview coaching. Finally, ongoing support is critical and is designed to promote women within the workforce, develop leadership skills, and get ongoing education.

SelectHealth recognizes the economic impact of People Helping People as another example of how Utah Gives Back.
