Description: At Interfaith we empower families in crisis to break the cycle of poverty. You can't build a life on unstable ground. That is why our first step is to stabilize homeless families in one of the 49 fully-furnished apartments that we own debt-free. Next, we build self-worth by helping parents identify a purpose that will help them go from "working to live" to "loving their work." Finally, we provide families with new skills via counseling, training and job search support to help them land a career with a livable wage while also providing the financial coaching needed to make the most of their new income. Students can work Monday - Friday after 3:30 p.m. Application, orientation and background check required. Call contact person for more information.

For orientation details, please contact the agency.
