Coaching is a supportive partnership that empowers participants with the tools to find solutions and move their families forward. Participants work with a coach to create an individual employment plan; identify and pursue career goals; develop better self-awareness and resiliency; access resources; and find strategies to increase financial stability. Our coaches help participants set goals, identify concrete steps toward meeting those goals through an action plan, and provide bi-weekly check-ins on progress and to help keep them accountable. We focus on building success in five areas: career, finances, family, education/training, and community connections.
Coaches also provide a wealth of knowledge about resources, including referrals to – and support in obtaining – additional services around health and basic needs, further education and vocational training opportunities, and specialized services to meet needs beyond our expertise.
