Helping people in transition build a new life through work and faith.
The WorkFaith Connection's mission is to help people in transition build a new life through work and faith. WorkFaith is a Christ-centered organization that exists to encourage disadvantaged job seekers in their hope for a better future and to equip them with the skills and beliefs to gain employment and lead healthy, productive and spiritually rich lives.
How We Accomplish Our Mission
The WorkFaith Connection program goes much deeper than simply teaching someone how to fill out an application and where to look for work. We teach our clients how to be great employees, how to serve their employers and how to thrive in the workplace, while growing in their faith throughout the journey. The effectiveness of the WorkFaith program is reinforced by building and maintaining long-term relationships with our students. To help our clients build a new life through work and faith, we offer a four-stage program:
I volunteer to do mock interviews for the Workfaith Connection men and women and I love it because the graduates tell me that I contribute to their success. I also love the staff - they have succeeded in building a system and a process that really and truly (check the statistics) help people get employment. They do things no government agency could do because they care so much about their graduates.
I am more impressed with Work Faith every time I volunteer there, and I look forward to participating as much as I can in 2012. This organization is truly making a difference in people's lives, applying Christ-centered principles in very real and effective efforts to get their students moving forward and putting the demons that have previously dragged them down permanently behind them. The program also affords great opportunities for the volunteers to contribute in very meaningful ways and participate in "doing the Lord's work"! In truth, every time I leave one of the mock interview sessions I feel that I got much more than I gave.
The WorkFaith Connection (WFC) is a great organization that is making a difference in our community. They are about “changed” lives. WFC is a Christian based organization that meets the spiritual needs of a person while providing the individual with the tools, skills and confidence they will need to conduct a successful job search.
I constantly promote WorkFaith Connection among my friends and acquaintances as an ideal place to volunteer their time.
The clients are committed, enthusiastic and appreciative for the help, direction and learning they receive. The staff, many of whom are graduates, are professional, dedicated, empathetic, and compassionate.
WFC has an amazing 70%+ success rate in placing their graduates in jobs and they do this without any government funding or subsidies.
If you're still not sure, check their calendar and attend a Graduation Ceremony (no appointment necessary). If you're not hooked after that, then you have no heart for helping others. Help as much as you can or as little as you like. Either way your life will be enriched and others will benefit.
Hope springs forth! If ever you have looked for a job for very long, you know the discouragement of that process!! As a volunteer, I have been able to connect with people when they needed it most -- with a smile, a hug, a good word or a possibility!
I feel WorkFaith has allowed me to use my best skills and challenged me to develop a few more to help people. The staff is very professional, yet kind and supportive of anyone who comes in the door, whether future student or volunteer. The goal to stay Christ-centered is quite impressive!
