Our clients are connected to the resources needed to fulfill self-sufficiency. The end goal is always stable employment, but it often takes many steps to get there including Housing, GED/Education, Business Clothing, Transportation, Childcare, Mental Health Counseling, and Vocational Training.
SNAP/ Food Stamp recipients with dependent(s) who are ready to improve their employment status can receive free program services including paid on-the-job training, job skills development, supportive services and exclusive access to real jobs. Interested individuals can contact Jasmine Johnson, Career Specialist Unit Leader, at (314) 333-5618.
Offering more than just a job, Employment Connection provides valuable resources, training, and support to inspire and empower clients to change their circumstances, become employed, and attain self-sufficiency throughout St. Louis City and County in Missouri as well as St. Clair County in Illinois.
