"Why don't they just get a job?"
...an often-asked question by many who are far removed from poverty. If only it were that simple. The barriers to employment are many. They are as basic as needing a photo ID, bus tokens to get to an interview, or the means to communicate w/ potential employers...as necessary as computer access and savvy, a resume or the "know how" to create one... and as unexpected as needing to provide your own work clothing/tools once you get the job. Our donors, volunteers, and staff are helping to remove those barriers every day. The chart pictured here reflects the Employment Support services we've provided since January of the year.
