EMPOWERING WITH A HAND UP, NOT A HAND OUT
Goldie’s Place has provided employment services to over 200 homeless men and women in 2014 through its Employment Program. The program uses a team approach emphasizing accountability and a willingness to be open minded. Skill building includes job search techniques, resume writing, application preparation and interview and presentation skills.
The program’s comprehensive job search techniques, resume writing, application preparation, computer lab, interview and presentation skills resulted in job placement for close to 600 participants in the last five years.
Through our Employment Assistance, we empower participants to find jobs by providing:
- Job search tools and workplace knowledge through our week-long pre-employment training seminar
- Personal coaching and case management support
- Connections to companies with job openings
- Back-to work clothing closet stocked with lightly used business and on-the job clothing
We receive and exchange referrals with over 110 homeless serving agencies annually. Goldie’s Place provides employment services to approximately 250 homeless men and women each year through its Employment Program!
