The planning phase is complete and Philadelphia will launch its first same day work program for individuals experiencing economic insecurity in Center City, Philadelphia

Philadelphia, PA (February 21, 2019) – Drawing on the successful experiences of other cities in offering same day work and pay, the Barra Foundation awarded Mural Arts Philadelphia and Mental Health Partnerships a two-year grant to initiate a program in Philadelphia.

Mural Arts Philadelphia and Mental Health Partnerships proposed a mural-making work opportunity for individuals experiencing economic instability. The opportunity specifically targets participants experiencing economic instability in Center City, Philadelphia.

The grant award included support for a set of discovery interviews and the development of a theory of change. This three-month discovery phase, led by The Scattergood Foundation, was used to inform the design, implementation, and evaluation of a “same day work” program in Philadelphia and has resulted in a publicly available report.

The report will be shared at a public launch event in Philadelphia on Monday, February 25 at 8:30am at the Friends Center, 1501 Cherry Street, Philadelphia, PA. Speakers include authors of this work and representatives from Camden, New Jersey who will share their experiences with their successful same day work program.

The theory of change highlights the need for multi-sector collaboration, explicates the program design, includes goals of the work, and next steps for the community, the private sector, city officials, and philanthropy.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to complete a discovery phase to learn about best practices, connect with a diverse group of stakeholders, including participants, and work closely with Mural Arts Philadelphia and Mental Health Partnerships to develop a comprehensive theory of change. We are excited to launch this program to begin Philadelphia’s first same day work opportunity to set the groundwork for all same day work programs moving forward,” said Joe Pyle, President of The Scattergood Foundation.
