It is with great gratitude that Chester County Opportunities Industrialization Center would like to share that our Enclave program has been granted ARPA funding on behalf of the Chester County Commissioners votes!
Our Work Enclave, which has successfully taught participants career and personal development skills while helping to better the city of Coatesville to which we serve and call home, will be continuing for 3.5 years thanks to the gracious support of this grant amount of $833,070!

The Alliance for Health Equity (AHE) will award a two-year grant in the amount of $225,000 to the Chester County OIC (Opportunities Industrialization Center) for the Homelessness and Unemployment in Coatesville Collective.
The collective aims to help people live healthy and well by increasing employment, living wages, and housing stability for 18- to 24-year-old adults of color living in Coatesville.
The AHE began a three-phase process to implement a Collective Impact model for the Homelessness and Unemployment in Coatesville Collective. Collective Impact is a disciplined, cross-sector approach to solving complex social and environmental issues on a large scale.
