Are You Struggling?

Have you ever struggled to put food on your table because you were out of work or underemployed? Maybe you didn’t have the skillset or education or had life circumstances that prevented you from getting a better job and making more money.

Are you a business owner and have ever felt the crushing helplessness of not knowing how to pay your bills? Have you had to lay off employees because you didn’t have enough cash flow to make payroll?

Have you been with the same company for 20 years or longer only to find out that your position has been eliminated before your retirement and pension is paid and now you no longer have income or benefits?

Have you ever been in a situation where you as a professional knew you had a lot to offer employers, but did not know how to connect with them, let alone get hired by them.

These are just some of the examples that we hear at Devoted Foundations SBC every single day. There are tons of businesses here in not only here in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, but all over the United States and the world that struggle to pay the bills and keep the doors open.   And even though the economy is better than it has been in the last 10 years, there are still tens of thousands of people out of work and millions of people that are underemployed due to their lack of education or lack of progressive skill training in their profession. Most of this has to do with lack of income, education and lack of money to improve their current situation.   And so the cycle of struggle continues….

What if we told you that it didn’t have to be this way?

At Devoted Foundations SBC, we take the donations that you give us and put them to work for these individuals! The donations that you give will allow us to consult and help business owners in crisis for free or whatever they can afford.  We do this in part by using our staff and many of the unemployed or early laid off/retired executives to help consult those businesses in need. We also use these funds to help those that need better employment to get the assistance that they need. This includes helping them write better resumes, doing interview training, and connecting them with those businesses that we know that are looking for quality individuals regardless of their educational background or their financial situation.  Your donated funds can not only literally mean the difference between life and death for a business, but the same for individuals and families that they support in the workforce.

Can you imagine that impact that you can make in someone’s life by donating as little as $10?  These donations have written resumes for those who felt that “they didn’t have the right education” and got excellent new careers!  Those donations have given new life to a dying business and helped keep them from going out of business and laying off all their staff that depended on them to feed their families.  Those donations allowed us to save those businesses by paying those out of work executives to help consult those failing businesses, and everyone won!

We strongly encourage you to give and help those in need!  You cannot imagine the impact that you can make in their lives and the lives of their loved ones.  Likewise, if you know someone that is in need of our help and support, please direct them to us so they don’t need to struggle!
