How does it work?

The Housing Authority of the City of Fort Myers (HACFM) Jobs-Plus Initiative addresses employment needs among public housing residents by incentivizing and enabling employment through income disregards for working families and services designed to support job readiness and retention. Jobs-Plus works one-on-one with residents, to guide them through the employment process and provide continuous support as residents achieve employment related goals.

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!

“I believe the Jobs Plus initiative is the key for economic opportunity to our residents and gives them the chance to unlock the door to the future they desire. It is my hope that the collective resources provided to residents through the Jobs Plus initiative will help residents identify their passions and set their course for success; assist our working residents to increase their earnings and start saving; remove barriers to work for adults trying to re-enter the workforce; and most importantly celebrate and support each of our residents in their path to self-sufficiency.” ~ Shannon Lane
