Many of our CCLM residents have skills and abilities that could lead to steady employment. But battles with addiction, mentalhealth struggles, and conflicts with law enforcement have created a cloud over their “gifts.” They’re identified more often by mistakes from their past, than by possibilities in their present.
The new Workforce Development Program (WDP) equips men with basic training and general aptitude, as they seek to
transition out of the shelter and into the workplace environment. This program is being launched with no public funding, in two
different categories: construction, restaurant employment and pastoral assistance. Additional options will be made available in
the near future.
This involves a two-year commitment from all participants. Housing is provided in one of two residences on campus, each
housing up to six men. Each client pays a small rent and utility charge.
Training is divided into phases. Each phase will have a Certified Trainer, and as each phase of training is completed, tests will be given to ensure the men
have learned what is required in that stage.
Upon passing from phase one, they will move into the next level of training. When all training is completed, each man will have an additional six months to
remain in the program as they seek to find permanent work and a place to live. Each phase provides men with life skills and relational assistance so they can
adapt to their new life beyond the CCLM campus.
