We're committed to giving Clevelander's a chance to advance - are you?

Each year, Towards Employment helps over 2000 people to connect to careers in our community by serving as support for people looking to find good jobs. 

Our mission is to empower individuals to achieve and maintain self-sufficiency through employment.

Towards Employment connects people to careers - helping them prepare, get, and keep a job; and then advance - in this way we change lives, advance business, and strengthen community.

Towards Employment provides supportive services for individuals facing barriers to employment.

We provide assistance for transportation, tools, and uniforms, and have a legal department that helps clear warrants, prevent evictions and foreclosures, addresses child support arrears, and clears debt. Most importantly, we provide career planning, coaching, and skill building through work experience and technical training so newly hired workers can succeed in their current job and then advance along a career pathway.
