This workforce development program is a social enterprise for men and women with barriers to employment (homelessness, former incarceration, physically challenging conditions, returning veterans) which offers ethical temporary labor services. We provide above-minimum wages, lunches, transportation, worker supplies, job readiness and job skill development, job coaching, employment retention, financial empowerment, and opportunities to obtain temp-to-hire opportunities through partnerships with local employers.

Many of the jobs are considered manual labor, which means that you may have the opportunity to work in the following fields:

  • general labor
  • moving
  • landscaping / water harvesting / buffelgrass removal
  • construction
  • light manufacturing / assembly
  • data entry / administrative
  • retail / restaurant
  • janitorial / housekeeping

We provide a variety of support, including:

  • referrals to housing;
  • assistance with job searching;
  • referrals to needed services such as food, clothing, substance abuse and mental health counseling; and
  • bus passes.
