Helps a diverse community of people facing employment obstacles to secure and maintain competitive employment in the community.
These individuals are seeking greater stability and include communities of color, ethnic communities, and those overcoming substance use disorders or a history with the justice system. Many may have dependent children, are at risk of homelessness, and live in distressed neighborhoods. They face multiple economic, social and academic barriers to employment, have little to no work history, and are either unemployed or underemployed.
Immediate employment is available through AccessAbility so participants can gain real work skills and establish a work history. Our career training includes job development, coaching and placement support. Project Connect staff and program participants work together to create and implement a vocational plan that leads to successful employment and also empowers people to achieve personal goals.
