NFF Backs First Step Staffing Expansion into Philadelphia
Atlanta, GA – January 15, 2018 – Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF) is proud to be one of the investors in First Step Staffing's expansion into Philadelphia. First Step, an Atlanta-based social enterprise, works to secure sustainable income for individuals transitioning out of homelessness, including veterans, re-entering citizens, and others with significant barriers to employment. In the first 12 months of operation in Philadelphia, First Step expects to employ 500 homeless men and women in the area and grow to serve more than 1,000 by year three.
First Step has acquired a portion of the Philadelphia-based division of On Time Staffing—a for-profit staffing company specializing in warehouse, packaging, and manufacturing jobs—which will now become part of First Step’s nonprofit operations.
