Proceeds from the Steps to Success Benefit support Daily Work's job search and professional development services that mitigate the barriers limiting access and opportunity for low-income, low-resourced job seekers. As family incomes rise, graduation rates and future earnings for children rise, while arrest rates, teen pregnancies, and need for public assistance decreases.
In the Twin Cities’ East Metro and Ramsey County, many job seekers continue to lack the networks, mentors, and skills required in today’s workforce. Entry-level jobs require increasingly higher levels of digital literacy, workplace skills, and work-place norm understanding, leaving people with less education or experiences in poverty, homelessness, and unemployment unable to enter the livable wage job market. Statistics show that these barriers disproportionately impact Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).
Daily Work’s unique, holistic approach is designed to meet people where they are with personalized, one-to-one services that progress as job seekers progress. From crisis intervention to resource development to life and work skill building and job identification, job seekers at Daily Work are supported through all the steps on the path to achieving their career and life goals.
We invite you to support these journeys and be a community-wide change agent by making a one-time or recurring monthly gift to Daily Work.
