CWCID was featured on the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer on PBS on May 1, 2009. The in-depth report is part of NewsHour's special Social Entrepreneurship series featuring nonprofit organizations that are tackling the world's biggest challenges.
We are honored to have been selected as a featured organization in this series. NewsHour spent two days with CWCID visiting financial education workshops and Neighborhood Trust, as well as speaking to some of the clients whose lives we have changed.
Neighborhood Trust empowers low-income people to become productive participants in the mainstream economy through a unique model that works. We deliver financial education programs in partnership with leading nonprofit and government agencies across New York City. And we offer these services in tandem with access to safe, affordable financial services at Neighborhood Trust Federal Credit Union, the community development credit union that we chartered in 1997, and a network of CDCUs around the city.
