JOBS Plus Program Partner Breakfast hosted by HABC
Acting Executive Director Michael Braverman and the Office of Resident Services hosted a Jobs Plus Partner Breakfast meeting. The meeting was held to brief partner organizations on the Jobs Plus Program at Gilmor Homes, and to review their commitments and responsibilities associated with the grant.
HABC was one of six awardees to receive the competitive $2.5 million award from HUD to operate the Jobs Plus Program. A matching commitment of more than $2.5 million from HABC and 18 partners brought the total award to over $5 million to operate the program through September 2020. HABC contributed $50,000 towards financial incentives and $1.25 million to renovate the Gilmor Community Center, which is home to Jobs Plus, the Boys & Girls Club, and the Baltimore City Community College computer training program.
The program will target services to the specific needs of Gilmor Homes residents to promote long-term sustainable employment. The program model includes a partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Employment Development, the Baltimore City Department of Social Services, the Baltimore City Health Department, Resident Services, Inc., and a host of other internal and external partners to promote initiatives to improve employment and earnings outcomes, a critical element of self-sufficiency for all families.
