We recently received a partial grant from the Workforce Development Institute . This will allow us to begin our Ride to Work program to allow potential workers to accept 2nd shift jobs in Syracuse and East Syracuse. We are planning to begin in May but more funding is needed.
The need is so great, approximately 3000 people in the County could utilize a program like this to finally get a job if only they had transportation. The saving to the County Social Services could be millions saved in the first year if they were employed .
You can help ! Donate to our program online, Run a fundraiser to raise money to help us cover the expense to give a worker a ride and Write the Commissioner of Social Services to voice your support. Share our news with others! Together we can make a difference.
