Non-profit professionals are on the ground doing the work that serves the most needy and vulnerable in our communities. They are advocating for those who face the challenge of homelessness, substance abuse, domestic violence and more. Non-profit professionals have a heart of service but they often find themselves working for lower salaries and without consistent raises. While non-profit professionals are working hard for others, they may often find themselves struggling financially. This is especially so for the young professionals who are now faced with paying off student loans and are living in high-cost areas like New York City.
