We are OPEN.
This COVID-19 pandemic has created an uncertainty that impacts all of us. This uncertainty is something that many low wage workers live with on a regular basis, worrying whether their next paycheck will be enough to keep them afloat or even where that paycheck might come from. Right now, that is a reality that so many people in Cleveland, and in the United States, are facing today as they are being displaced from their jobs due to the COVID-19 virus.
And today – Towards Employment’s work is more important than ever. In the midst of all this uncertainty, there are a few things we are certain of:
- While our physical space is closed and we are abiding by CDC and State of Ohio orders, TE is OPEN – we will continue to provide individualized support for those still working, for those who have lost jobs and need help connecting to resources to stabilize their families, and/or to connect people to new jobs (yes there are still employers hiring!) with support for retooling resumes and additional skill building resources to prepare people for the future. The first step is to call (216) 696-5750. Please share this message in your networks.
- We are very grateful to have the continued support of donors, funders, volunteers, staff, and board members, vital support for our services in times like these. Thank you.
Towards Employment continues to provide essential services to new job seekers, current participants and TE alumni. We are working in coordination with community partners and local governmental offices like Cuyahoga County Jobs and Family Services, United Way of Greater Cleveland and Ohio Means Jobs | Cuyahoga County to make sure that those looking for work can connect to the new workforce needs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Updates for the state and county can be found on the United Way 211 website - click here.
