Joblessness is one of the most psychologically stressful situations people face, and millions of our neighbors are facing it alone. Long-term unemployment too often breeds idleness and isolation, devastating a person’s spirit and leading to larger problems impacting families, communities, and society as a whole. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
One of the most powerful forces for good is the local church, and each day millions of people all across the country turn to places of worship for help when times get tough. It’s common for religious institutions to provide assistance with food or other charitable services to those in need, but less than two percent of churches provide a ministry to help people find and keep a well-paying job.
Through our proven Work2Win ministry, we will fill this gap and provide the resources needed to leverage the power of the local church to help those in need find work.
We recognize that the most valuable resource any church has to offer is not its finances, but its people. We also understand many churches have limited resources available, therefore we’ve designed the Work2Win employment workshop model specifically for the existing small-group or Sunday school class setting.
