"New Home. New Job. New Future."

Recovering from a long period of joblessness is hard. Statistics show that a long period of unemployment can be as a harmful to a job search as having a felony in your past. Your support of Daily Work helps our job seekers get the resources and skills they need to advance in their careers.



Every gift makes a difference to Daily Work job seekers.

Kona had not held a job since 2012 when she first came to Daily Work in June 2014. After struggling with complications with diabetes, losing her job, and then her apartment, Kona needed to find a stable place to live and a living environment that provided her with the stability to manage her diabetes before she could find work.


Daily Work connected her to a program that helps seniors build recent work history, pays them a small wage, and build skills to get back in the workforce. Daily Work then helped Kona find transitional housing, where she has her own room and her own bed, and she is not constantly moving from house to house, sleeping anywhere someone would let her spend the night.
Fifteen months later, with these supports in place, Kona found a new job as a dietary aide in a nursing home. Just two months later, she was promoted to full-time and got her first raise! She is in better health and she is happy... and now, she is working hard to save enough money to get an apartment of her own in the near future!
Your support makes stories like Kona's possible. Please give a gift today to help more people like Kona.
Thank you for your compassion and generosity this holiday season,
Julie Hoff and everyone at Daily Work

"Do You Have Implicit Bias?" Chelsea

By Chelsea Pederson, Daily Work Case Management Intern

Two years ago I would have said that I was "color blind" and that most people are like me. I believed I could understand the feelings of others no matter how different our social identities. As I continue to learn more about myself, I have come to realize that no matter how liberal and accepting I think I am; I still hold these unconscious biases of which I was previously, completely unaware.  Read More

By Xue Moua, Daily Work Case Management Intern

As an intern case manager at Daily Work, I work with many clients who, like me, are immigrants still learning English. I help job seekers with their job applications, cover letters, and resumes. Most of the job seekers I work with want to apply for housekeeping or janitorial jobs. I now realize they look for these types of jobs because it does not require them to have a lot of English skills in reading, writing or speaking. Read More
