How Can Employment Services Help Me?

If you are looking to improve your financial standing, Community Action’s Employment Services may be able to help you. We support our neighbors who seek employment, job training and support, education, and financial literacy. Through this program, you can create your own financial empowerment plan.  You’ll learn to fully understand your financial commitments and move toward healthy financial practices such as saving, budgeting, and asset development, with the goal of reducing dependence on financial assistance programs.

You’ll work directly with a case manager to create and maintain an individualized Economic Empowerment Plan, with the ultimate goal of increasing your ability to maintain self-sufficiency.

Am I Eligible?

To qualify for Employment Services, you must live in Ramsey or Washington County, be 18-years or older, currently employed or able to work, and be at or below 125% of the federal poverty guidelines. But, most importantly, you must be willing to follow your goal plan to reach your full potential. 

For more information or to apply, please call us at 651-603-5880
