Training For Employment

The ultimate empowerment

We believe in the healing power of work

With our help expanding their skills and confidence, guests often find the transition to self-sufficiency and outside employment easier.

All guests are enrolled in our vocational training program. In addition to learning and doing the daily life skills of running their home, all guests participate in a vocational training unit. Maintenance, Horticulture, Culinary, Retail, Moving and Storage. When not in a work unit they are doing employment search and skills development.

Vocational Training Program

Our multifaceted vocational training program includes:

  • Career coaching
  • Resume preparation
  • GED preparation
  • On-campus jobs
  • For those capable, job placement assistance on the open market.

Training sites

Guests can obtain vocational training and experience at a number of our facilities, including:

  • Our multi-purpose Moran Center, which provides training in the building rehabilitation and restoration trades through our well-equipped woodshop and metalworking facilities.
  • Guests and Clubhouse members can also express their creativity in the adjacent Bezalel Arts Studio.
  • Anawim Thrift Store. Here, guests learn basic work skills while the community benefits from nominally priced or free household goods and clothing.
  • St. Joseph Clubhouse where members and guests can pursue personalized GED training, culinary arts, horticulture and computer skills.

What We Do

“Feed the hungry and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.”

Isaiah 58:10

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”

Matthew 25:35-36
