2023 Recap: An Evening Of Connection & Community

Last spring, nearly 230 people gathered at Westminster Hall in support of providing expanded employment opportunities. Attendees enjoyed a fantastic, multi-cultural buffet, and we mixed, mingled, and partnered in building better futures through work.

We Let Our Community Know Their Voices Count!

A job is about more than satisfying basic needs. Good work provides people with purpose, belonging, dignity…a say in how they live. Daily Work supports job seekers in building the lives they want – one step and job at a time, we help them find and raise their voices. And it is reciprocal. As those we serve accomplish successes, so do we – our staff, volunteers, and interns learn, relate, and advocate.

Abdulaleem, Ger, Marwa, Meghan, and Mohammed (left to right) shared their stories at Steps to Success. We found out how to walk with them on their journeys. Won't you join us?


Because good work is not an end, but a means to a holistic and thriving life experience. It provides the foundation for making meaningful life choices that promote financial, physical, social, and community well-being.


Here's a Thought-Provoking Video
