Cornbread Hustle Finalist in United Way of Dallas: The Pitch - Social Innovation Award Competition

We are pleased to announce that Cornbread Hustle is a finalist in the 2021 United Way of Dallas: The Pitch – Social Innovation award competition!

Cornbread Hustle will join four other amazing community organizations for The Pitch. It’s a live event this spring in Dallas. Our founder Cheri Garcia will present our mission to a board of United Way judges for a chance at the grand prize.

Our organization has been working closely with United Way over the past year, and we’re very excited about the opportunity to share our story with a bigger audience. We’ve already learned much from our partnership and participation, and we are using that knowledge to grow Cornbread Hustle and better serve our community.

At The Pitch, Cheri will have only a few minutes to present the operations model her team has created to find jobs for men and women who are formerly incarcerated or in recovery from substance abuse and addiction. Cheri will talk about the broader benefits of getting people with criminal records back into the workforce, from reduced recidivism to powerful, generational economic impact on families.

We hope you can join us for this FREE virtual event! Mark your calendars for Thursday, April 22, at 7:00 PM. Register to virtually attend United Way of Dallas: The Pitch at the link below.
