Employment and Income Support

2-1-1 Community Resource Navigation Specialists can work with you to find employment-related services, as well as information about public assistance programs and emergency financial assistance for those experiencing an unexpected financial crisis.

There are a number of organizations that help people with finding available jobs, résumé writing and interview skills. Some of these also provide professional licenses and certificates, on-the-job training or job placement. There are also offices that collect and respond to reports of discrimination or harassment during the hiring process, workplace safety concerns and unlawful labor practices. Tuition support or other payment assistance may be available for vocational and technical education (including expenses like tools and uniforms).

Along with Social Security, Unemployment Benefits and Worker’s Compensation, there are government benefits that can provide an additional source of household income. These programs are generally limited to certain groups of people, such as those with disabilities, older adults or veterans. Some may also require recipients to participate in developmental activities like parenting classes, life skills training and job training activities.

Programs offering “undesignated emergency financial assistance” (financial assistance that is not limited to a specific need and is generally granted when no other services exists to meet a specific situation or need) may also be available.

2-1-1's Community Resource Navigation Specialists are available 24 hours a day, 7 days to assist you in finding the best community resources to fit your needs
