Why Employment?

Employment provides us with more than just an income.
Employment gives us purpose. It helps us grow and it helps us care for the people that depend on us. When a person is employed, they are less likely to commit crime, less likely to be in poverty and more likely to be healthy.


Employment lowers crime and recidivism. Our city becomes a safer place for families to live.


As people are employed and educated, businesses have solid workforces and families have disposable income.


When families have resources to work, kids grow up with bigger hopes and dreams for their futures.


Having greater income and access to preventative care helps people live more active and complete lives.
