Job Readiness

Work and Life Skills for Men & Women

Empowering Men & Women

Professional & Educational Growth, Job-Readiness, Work

Men and women were created by God to work and be responsible for supporting ourselves and our families whenever possible. Our Job Readiness Programs focus on these two realities. Each participant will receive classroom teaching, on-the-job training, counseling, and personal attention as they prepare to enter the work force.

Each qualifying participant will receive help with resume preparation and interview skills. Job search help is also available. We partner with several businesses that are willing to hire our graduates. Our goal is to help each participant find a career and not just a “paycheck”.

At Faith Mission, we offer a job-readiness residential program for men called Faith Enterprises.

Faith Enterprises is a social enterprise which offers lawn services and tree maintenance to the community.

The men selected for the program are qualified graduates of the New Beginnings program.  They are able to develop a positive work history and accumulate savings leading to employability and independence.

All proceeds of Faith Enterprise are used to support Faith Mission & Faith Refuge.

Faith Refuge Career Academy for Women is a 12-week career and life skills training program.  It requires self-discipline and dedication to complete, and acceptance into the program is determined by an application and interview process.
