I've been an Employment Coach with Center for Changing Lives for a year now. I provide employment one on one coaching with clients, I also coordinate with the employment team to connect clients with employment opportunities. I focus on services to the homeless via outreach and engagement specifically to the Interim Housing program around the city of Chicago. I refer clients to appropriate internal and external service providers to ensure the client's supportive services are being accessed, and provide employment related workshops internally and within the community and directly to Interim Housing Providers throughout the city of Chicago, as well as job readiness courses, English for Job Seekers, Employee Rights and Responsibilities and Policies and Procedures in the Workplace.

Ready to apply for a job with the transit system, but I need work gear to get hired.

I've been offered a job! All I need to start is work uniforms & bus fare.

I can take the job offer at an assisted living facility if I get uniforms. I'm homeless, so getting a job will open big doors for me and my kids. More
