Employment Assistance Related Items
STRIDE creates opportunities for people with mental health and addiction challenges to gain and maintain meaningful employment. STRIDE’s Employment Connections Program and Youth Employment Program focus on assisting individuals to obtain employment in the community. They offer individuals a variety of job readiness services which are highly individualized and based on the person’s preferences and abilities.
Many of the individuals they serve have limited financial resources and therefore require assistance with transportation and in purchasing necessary clothing in order to obtain employment. This grant will provide funds for transportation (bus passes, tickets), and funds for necessary clothing (work boots, safety equipment, interview clothes).
