Hope United Workforce Solutions
Hennepin County's data indicates that 67% of North-Minneapolis residents are dependent upon public assistance. That is intolerable and we are making changes! Imagine the impact that 1,200 north-side residents entering the workforce will have on community development in North-Minneapolis and on growing the Twin Cities' shrinking work-force!beyond! To actualize this vision, Hope United CDC, has connected with Hennepin County, and several nonprofits to help heads of households on welfare obtain employment in jobs that provide a career pathway.
There are lots of ways to help: become a member of our Join our Economic Development Council; become a coach or tutor; help us provide child-care; or use your church van to transport new workers to their jobs.
