Corporation for Public Management

Helping youth and adults break barriers to achievement

Four students graduatingStarted in 1980, Corporation for Public Management (CPM) operates programs that enable people to break the cycle of welfare dependency and allows those with special needs to remain in the community, supporting their capacities to lead productive lives surrounded by friends and family rather than in institutionalized settings.
