TWB is based in Alexandria, Virginia but serves the Washington DC area. It is the only low barrier workforce training program in the region serving low-income women that are may be reentering the community from the corrections system, experiencing long term unemployment, chronic homelessness and/or assimilating to America as a recent immigrant.
Currently, TWB uses Salesforce for our grant pipeline. We would like to use Salesforce to track client, donor, funder, vendor and customer info. Salesforce is compatible with other software currently used by TWB (QuickBooks Online for accounting, MailChimp for email marketing, Woocommerce for online sales, and online fundraising platforms). We currently use Sumac for tracking client and donor info, but none of our existing software is compatible and the syncing process is very burdensome. The increased efficiency through using Salesforce would allow staff to focus more efforts on direct programmatic support for participants and graduates.
We are committed to meeting with the volunteer as often as necessary to discuss our needs and create an implantation plan. We are also committed to training all staff and volunteers to use Salesforce. We know the learning curve will be steep for many, but we will provide all the support needed.
Together We Bake’s mission is to provide a comprehensive workforce training and personal development program to help women gain self-confidence, transferable workforce skills, and invaluable hands-on experience which will allow them to find sustainable employment and move toward self-sufficiency.
