At the Evelyn K. Davis Center for Working Families, we're helping families and individuals improve their financial position and connecting them with their work and career goals.
From its location in the heart of Des Moines, Iowa, the state's capital city, the Evelyn K. Davis Center is helping many Central Iowans build their educational and job dreams. This first-of-its-kind center is a beacon for those looking for educational, job training and career opportunities by delivering these workforce services. We're preparing many Central Iowans to find their life's calling as successful, working Iowans.

The Center is a partnership between the
Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines,
The Directors Council and
Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC). Along with a grocery store located in the same building complex, the partnership is providing solutions to three crucial needs identified by local residents: workforce training, employment opportunities and grocery and retail services.
