After several years of developing Jobs for Life (JfL) classes and conversation, the JfL Charleston City Network began to take shape in 2016. This strategy has allowed a local network of churches, nonprofit organizations, business partners, as well as the employed, unemployed, and underemployed to flourish; all centered around the DIGNITY OF WORK. We are seeing strategic partnerships, transformed individuals and families, and an incredible success in jobs placement.

We invite you to be a part of this work with us!
