Helping people get back to work
Fast Track to Employment
A former drug addict and welfare recipient finds work thanks to Fast Track to Employment. This non-profit consortium of 30 employment service suppliers helps unemployed people return to the workforce.
They work with employers to meet their needs, while helping people develop work skills, communication skills and upgrade their education.
They persuaded Mills Basics, an office supply company, to hire five people from the Downtown East Side.
It turned out to be a winning situation for the employee and the employer.
