Nothing attacks one’s dignity like a lack of work. The suffering and consequences of unemployment and underemployment are pervasive and heart-wrenching. Joblessness contributes to poverty, crime, homelessness, domestic violence, substance abuse, unwanted pregnancies, depression, divorce, and suicide – it is self-perpetuating and tears at the fabric of society.
Jobs for Life addresses the devastating effects of unemployment and poverty by helping men and women experience the dignity of work–through honest relationships, mentoring, Biblically-based training, and an ongoing community of support.
80% of Jobs for Life graduates find meaningful employment.
OUR VISION: All people working and living for the glory of God.
