Employment - The WorkFaith Connection
Main Street Ministires has been a proud partner of The WorkFaith Connection since 2011, providing facilities for them to offer their top-quality employment readiness program on our campus.
The WorkFaith Connection 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.
Through an eight-day job readiness boot camp, The WorkFaith Connection helps men and women get back to work. Many of the men and women served have struggled with a variety of barriers to employment such as homelessness, drug addiction, prison or other unstable life patterns. The participants are taught how to be great employees and how to thrive in the workplace and in life, while growing in their faith throughout the journey. The effectiveness of the program is reinforced by the commitment to long term interaction with its clients. The relationship is based on trust and develops throughout the four stages of the program:
- Recruitment and Selection of Participants
- Eight-day Job Readiness Workshop
- Job Attainment
- Job Retention and Life Advancement

For individuals and families that are currently homeless, the first step toward housing is an assesment through Coordinated Access. Click here to locate a hub on The Way Home´s Coordinated Access Guide.
