Several businesses partnering with ‘Higher Ground Initiative’

News

An effort to fight poverty in the city of Syracuse received much-needed support from new partners announced in the “Higher Ground Initiative.”

The program works by approaching panhandlers in the city and offering them a chance to work for a paycheck and get help with substance abuse.  

On Thursday, it was announced that Destiny USA, Panera, Ziebart, and Eddie Bauer are partnering with the program, to help people get a second chance.

The Higher Ground Initiative hopes to get the program running in May.
