We are very proud to be among the organizations selected by the City of Rochester for workforce development programming. Mayor Malik D. Evans announced on September 30, 2022, that the city selected nine partners in the local human-services sector to engage more than 3,000 residents in workforce development programming. The nonprofit agencies will invest a total of $14.5 million from the city’s allocation of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) to provide workforce development and entrepreneurship training across a variety of trades and small business sectors.
We were awarded $2.4 million and will be collaborating with HCR Home Care to develop and manage a Community Home Health Aide Training Program. The home health aides will have opportunities for career advancement and access to additional training programs to become an LPN, RN, or to become qualified for other healthcare jobs. Case management support and incentives will be offered through partnerships with referring agencies including Exercise Express and Catholic Charities and Family Community Services.
