The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to help Connectinc. expand its scope of services, and extend those services to an additional 1,000 displaced tobacco workers in 24 counties in eastern North Carolina. Connectinc. uses a call-center approach to match individuals to employers and to resources that facilitate employment and provides follow-up counseling and personal support. The project includes improving accessibility to rural communities and securing the resources to effectively serve a growing bilingual community.
