  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.

Just a Bit of Encouragement Can Go a Long Way
