The Get A Job Kit featured on NBC’s Today Show
As seen on Today Show
“Like so many One Stop Centers, we serve a region that’s been hit hard by layoffs and downsizing. The Get A Job Kit supplements existing county employment services and helps us respond more rapidly. We keep a supply on hand because you never know when the next shoe will drop.”
— Reno, Nevada
The Get A Job Kit made a special appearance on the Today Show, when Women’s Empowerment–the non-profit organization that produces the Kit as a solution to end homelessness–was featured in a “Hope to It” segment.
As host Natalie Morales notes in the piece, each homeless woman who graduates from the Women’s Empowerment job-readiness program receives a Get A Job Kit–and nearly 90% of those women secure a job or enroll in training soon after. That is a testament to the power of the program, as well as the usefulness of the Kit!
Though the Today Show segment does not mention it, all of The Get A Job Kits are assembled by graduates of Women’s Empowerment who are developing advanced job skills as part of a paid training program preparing them for lasting employment.
