The Pascale Sykes Foundation’s Working Together for Working Families Conference took place on February 2, 2017. The conference showcased the Whole Family Approach and South Jersey Strengthening Families Initiative Grantees. More than 325 stakeholders and experts in the family social services field gathered for the one-day conference, which was held at Cumberland County College’s Luciano Conference Center. The conference was designed to help expand the national discussion on how to best assist low-income, working class families. 



The Approach

The Pascale Sykes Whole Family Approach is grounded in the belief that families with at least two consistent, responsible adults and active buy-in of all family members are most stable and healthy in every sense. Through pursuing family determined goals, they can become socially and economically stable, and individuals within the families can lead productive lives and contribute to their communities.

The Grants

Pascale Sykes Foundation awards long term grants, renewed annually, to collaborations providing life coaching. Such coaching enables families to obtain resources, to develop informal supports and to navigate the system, thus achieving positive outcomes.
