Social entrepreneur-led organizations join national network committed to breaking the cycle of poverty in America

ARLINGTON, Va., April 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Stand Together today announced new partnerships with 14 organizations

that are helping individuals to break the cycle of poverty in America and realize their full potential.

The 14 organizations will be the eighth cohort to participate in Stand Together's Catalyst Program and join a growing national network of more than 130 high-performing organizations that are transforming communities across the country.

"We are building a network of the nation's most impactful community-based organizations and this new group is an inspiring addition," said Evan Feinberg, executive director of Stand Together. "People are capable of extraordinary things, and each of these organizations helps people tap into their unique gifts and talents to contribute to others. In the process, these social entrepreneurs are breaking barriers and helping people improve their lives."
