About the Triangle Area City Network

Jobs for Life was founded in downtown Raleigh in 1996. Over the next 15 years, seeds were planted and various churches, businesses and ministries were involved.

In 2011, the next step was taken and the Triangle area was launched as the first JfL City Network where a concerted effort was made to connect the church and business community through the JfL platform. At the time there were 4 churches actively involved.

Today there are 40+ churches/ministries, dozens or businesses, and hundreds of volunteers working together in a vibrant, life-giving network.
