Breaking Down Barriers
Project Connect provides training and opportunity to secure and maintain competitive employment in the community. Many served in this program have dependent children, are at risk for homelessness, live in distressed neighborhoods, and have other significant barriers to employment and community inclusion.
This transitional employment program serves a diverse community including communities of color, minority ethnic communities, those with little or no work history and those facing multiple economic, social and academic barriers to employment. Our Career and Educational Pathways (CEP) Program provides services to support adults with criminal backgrounds who are reentering the community.
We provide immediate work opportunities in our in-house production facilities to assist with gaining real work skills and work history. The outcome is long-term employment and career advancement. The staff and participant work together through an interview and assessment process to create a vocational plan to pursue successful employment. A collaborative approach with educators, local businesses, government agencies and other service providers is used to connect individuals with the resources they need to transition into the community and meet the needs of employers.
