Turning the TIDE stands for Technology and Information Delivered for Empowerment. Our mission is to empower low-income residents of Philadelphia through the delivery of technology programs, workforce development services and social impact projects.
Turning the TIDE provides services and employment opportunities to individuals from throughout Philadelphia, focusing on neighborhoods in west and southwest Philadelphia. Perhaps more importantly, Turning the TIDE concentrates its provision of services for individuals and families who are living in poverty and/or are from lower income brackets. Many of Turning the TIDE’s clients have lower educational levels, criminal records, or histories of substance abuse. Many are also single parents working to make ends meet and make the transition to economic self-sufficiency.
