A Proven Partnership That's Strengthening Whole Communities
The Jobs Partnership of Florida is a thriving, faith-based partnership of individuals, churches, employers and community organizations working together to transform the lives of the working poor and underemployed in our community.
Across Florida 45% of households struggle to afford the basic necessities of housing, childcare, food, healthcare, and transportation.
In Orange County It’s actually 47%—almost half of all households.
We provide a proven way for churches to engage their membership and train up leaders as they collaborate with a diverse group of Church Partners to answer the Biblical call to help the poor.
We train and equip Volunteers to work together as a team to support the LifeWorks classes, provide mentorship to Students, and even work on special projects and events. A variety of hands-on roles are available, each utilizing particular gifts and skills.
Our network of Employers represent a range of industries from healthcare to the automotive industry. As one of our Employers, you can recruit and hire qualified Graduates, participate in our exclusive Job Fairs, offer specialized training and provide Volunteers and Instructors.
Our Community Partners are organizations and government agencies in the community that can refer Students to LifeWorks Training. They can also provide valuable resources and vocational training to our Students and Graduates.
Our valued Financial Partners— individuals, businesses and churches in the Florida community—give generously to make it all possible. We call them our Transformation Team, because they are providing the means to transform whole communities.
