Employment Program

Organization: Thrive DC

In some cases homelessness may be temporary, while in others it is a chronic challenge. Whatever the reason, homelessness cannot be solved through the provision of meals and supplies alone.

We work to uncover the reasons why an individual has become destabilized and provide the necessary training, education, and ongoing support needed to regain their independence. For that reason, we offer:

– One-on-one case management and employment support
– Workshops in foundational skills and job readiness
– Resume writing and job search support
– 23 weeks of intensive employment training

For individuals who need more support in finding employment, Thrive DC provides two case managers that will tailor their approach to an individual’s need. Topics covered in case management can include:

Employment Goals and Expectations
Effective Resume and Cover Letter Writing
Interviewing Skills
Workplace Communication
Job Searching Techniques
Financial Planning and Money Management
Mock Interviews
