Community Organizations

Community Organizations can be great places to get help finding a job. We provide a large list of organizations where you can get help searching for a job. Some require an orientation, some provide skills training, some help with ID documents, some do resume and cover letter preparation–some do it all!

Check out an organization’s website to learn more. Then call to see if you need to make an appointment to attend an orientation or if you can just walk in. Many organizations provide a way to email them directly through their website as your first step.
