Fund for the School District

The ideas being considered at the School District of Philadelphia required money, and lots of it, at a time when a cratering economy was and is devastating state and local budgets.

Equal Justice Center

Legal services only work when those who need them most can access them. Only about 20 percent of low-income Philadelphians currently have access to lawyers to navigate high-stakes situations that jeopardize their families, jobs, homes, and lives. Legal issues rarely exist in a vacuum. And when Philadelphians face issues like domestic violence, wrongful eviction, or […]

The plan, now overseen by the Kenney administration, seeks to engage all Philadelphians in increasing opportunities and improving the quality of life for low-income families and individuals.

Sage worked with a team of Jefferson Nurses on a […]
