National Journal Features Jeremiah

“The American middle class is under stress, but American innovation is alive and thriving,” says Sophie Quinn of the National Journal. “Lots of people and organizations are trying new ways to strengthen the nation’s beleaguered middle class. No single group or government entity, of course, has all—or even any—of the best answers. But together, they might. The most successful approaches often have deep local roots, and many emphasize collaboration.”

Quinn’s article names Jeremiah Program as a “proven innovator.” The article is the first in a series in the National Journal and The Atlantic highlighting innovators for a stronger middle class, ranging from tech start-ups with a vision to organizations with solid track records for improving social outcomes or helping businesses grow.
