Community Inclusion and Transitional Employment
We believe that anyone can work if they are given the right support. In today’s job market, with many more qualified candidates than jobs available, is it more important than ever to level the playing field for people who are marginalized and have been out of the workforce for long periods of time for multiple reasons.
The Philadelphia Furniture Bank (PFB) provides part-time jobs as part of Pathways' Transitional Employment Program. These jobs include furniture repair apprentices, warehouse workers and personal shoppers, clerical assistance, delivery help and van drivers. The job training benefits of the program result in high retention rates, transition to competitive employment, and improved overall quality of life satisfaction for participants.
This year, will expand our program and create more opportunities to work. This we know for sure: people want to work and they can work.
We need your help to continue offering real solutions to chronic homelessness in Philadelphia.
