The Worcester Community Connections Coalition, affiliated with YOU Inc.’s Parent Action Committee invites All Worcester Families to Attend a Focus Group on …

Challenges in Finding Employment

What Barriers Are Families Facing and What Additional Supports Are Needed?

Wednesday, November 12

5:30 p.m. -7 pm

At Ascentria Care Alliance

11 Shattuck St.

(on the street next to Hahnemann Hospital on Lincoln Street)

WCCC is a coalition of parents and local service providers that work together to improve access to local services for families.

Our Parent Action Group is working on a project to identify the barriers and gaps in services that families face in finding good jobs.

We conducted a survey last year and the majority of families said that employment and financial struggle were the top barriers they face.

The goal of the focus group is to meet with parents and get more details in some of the barriers that they or other parents they know have faced in finding a job with a good wage; such as lack of transportation or childcare.

We are going  to take the information we get in our focus group and pass it onto agencies in the city that provide Employment Services to potentially strengthen services.

Dinner will be provided.

Some transportation available as needed

Supervision for children available.

Please call 508-796-1411 to RSVP
