Five pathways… One outcome.

Chronic unemployment… Family breakdown… Addiction and trauma… Personal debt… Educational failure…

Research indicates that five interconnected pathways perpetuate the cycle of poverty all across the country, and in cities like Dallas. Tackling these challenges demands innovative solutions, which is precisely why Deion Sanders and Stand Together launched Prime 5: A $21 million fundraising initiative that will support for-purpose organizations that can empower Dallas residents to transform their lives and find a path out of poverty.

We need you on our team, because when we stand together, we win together!
