Immigrants face a variety of complex challenges that create barriers to finding good work. We're driving to change that.

In an ever-evolving global landscape, Daily Work continues to rise to meet pressing needs in our community.
Minnesota is a leader in welcoming new arrivals. But once here, most face daunting bureaucratic challenges that compound their trauma and make it difficult to find employment.
At Daily Work we provide flexible, customized services that transcend job search basics: from help with driver’s training and license acquisition to navigating the maze of social service agencies, from supplying computers and tech training to moral support, and more…we are there.
And demand is absolutely surging. In 2023 we’re on track to assist 25% more job seekers than last year. Almost 80% of them are immigrants or refugees. Due to this increase:
• Our interpreter costs have doubled.
• We hired an additional full-time case manager.
These investments are essential…and add significantly to expenses. Your gift is crucial to Daily Work's ability to meet demand. Hit the button below to go to our secure online donation page now.
