EMPLOYMENT SERVICES

The gap between net income and ordinary living costs for many families in our community is staggering. The daily costs of food, rent, child care, health care and transportation often exceed real income or leave people with difficult choices.

Employment Services provide a comprehensive approach to help people pursue living wage jobs.

We partner with local employers toward mutually beneficial opportunities that fill job vacancies and close job and income opportunity gaps. Additional partnerships with community colleges and job training centers enhance the marketability of job seekers.
