The Faces of Daily Work

  To help, our staff and interns are dedicated to working to fill that gap by providing one-to-one, personalized coaching and mentoring to help them address their immediate needs and craft a plan to achieve permanent, living-wage work.

Jeff's New Purpose

  Jeff knew he would face some tough challenges in his job search. Last October, he was unexpectedly laid off after eight years as a warehouse laborer. Before that, he worked in construction.
   “Physically, I knew I couldn’t do that kind of work anymore,” said Jeff, who is in his late 50s.
   Today, Jeff is working as a human services representative with Hennepin County, and he has a whole new sense of purpose.

Public Transportation: A Blessing or a Curse or Both?

Public Transportation: A Blessing or a Curse or Both? “You don’t know what you got until it’s gone” is a cliché that rings true to me lately.  I never appreciated having a car until I no longer had one. I now rely on public transportation to get around.  There are several positive aspects of public transportation including NOT worrying about finding parking, breaking down, running out of gas, flat tires and the other maintenance issues with cars.
