Thank You for Helping Us Beat Our Goal!

More than 300 people have viewed Daily Work's May 18 Steps to Success Event (click the bold text to view it now), which featured storyteller and entertainer, T. Mychael Rambo. The evening showcased the journeys of several Daily Work stakeholders, highlighting the strength, courage, and resiliency 2020 required of us all. One of the most moving moments included a special, version of John Mayer's song — Waiting On The World To Change. The new lyrics included motivational lines about Daily Work's job seekers and was performed by T. Mychael. 

The Annual Steps to Success event is critical to Daily Work's continued operations and financial stability. This year, the event raised just over $46,000, our best event ever! Our heartfelt thanks to all who contributed to this success, especially matching gift sponsors Maryellen Skan and Peter Thiel and the Justin and Susan Kelly Foundation.

I am inspired by Daily Work's efforts to provide a safe space to land for folks seeking an uplift. They are a place that offers job search assistance, life coaching, and other resources that any one of us might need, deserve, and appreciate during the daunting task of finding good work.
