Celebrating Work!

At Jobs for Life, we love celebrating work! From construction workers to lawyers, waiters, dentists, and teachers, we believe no job is greater than the other. Work helps bring us dignity and purpose, and through our work we're able to use our God-given gifts and talents to provide for ourselves, our family, and our community. We believe work is good and necessary, which is why we make it our mission to help those who are unemployed or underemployed find and keep meaningful work.

With this in mind, we're spending the next two months (between now and Labor Day), celebrating all things WORK! Each week we'll be highlighting a different theme and asking YOU to help contribute. 

We'll be sharing more on this blog as well as on our social media accounts—so if you're not already, follow us today on FacebookTwitterInstagram, and LinkedIn.

We look forward to celebrating work with you!
