Salisbury, Md.-Just a little over one year old, SHORE UP! Inc.’s Two Generation Project is already proving to be successful.


The project allows SHORE UP! to assist families in combatting intergenerational poverty, moving towards achieving self-sufficiency. The Two Generation Approach includes

case workers individualizing services to families by assessing family strengths and needs, identifying target areas, developing family goals and objectives and assessing family progress.


This approach focuses on three priorities achieved through community events, one-on-one counseling, community partnerships, workshops and more. The three priorities are: families achieving self-sufficiency through education and work, building family wealth through financial literacy, and supporting children’s success through early learning.


As of Nov. 18, 2019, the Two Generation Project placed seven families into employment; five families have obtained an occupational skills training certification; and 12 Early Head Start and Head Start children have been closely monitored on their assessments for additional support where needed.
