Help for the Working Poor
By appointment only, Monday - Friday
Those who find it hard to make ends meet are becoming more financially independent through the Helping the Working Poor Program. Approximately 200 families per year work with a case manager and a mentor to create a family budget and set spending priorities. Job training and job readiness assistance is also provided; and participants can get assistance with transportation and other costs related to seeking better employment. In addition to families, about 50 individuals are helped by the program each year.
