Through Jobs-Plus, residents will connect with supportive services such as transportation, childcare, health care, job training programs and other services that support continuous employment. With the assistance of the Jobs Plus team, residents will secure meaningful employment, achieve employment related goals, increase earnings, and build wealth!
