County of Applicant:
Wake
Description:

The Family Resource Center South Atlantic (FRCSA) will provide employment assessment and training, job placement, and case management services for long-term unemployed adult workers in rural Halifax County. Training will also qualify the completers for electrical and construction-related jobs. FRCSA will partner with the NC Department of Public Safety to target and recruit returning citizens for the program and the local NCWorks employment center for the participant assessment process. While FRCSA will provide general employment training, it also partners with The Center for Energy Education, which provides industry-specific and OSHA-10 certification training in conjunction with Halifax Community College. Following training completion, participants will receive job placement assistance. Wraparound services for reentering adults may also include legal services such as assistance with record expungement and driver license restoration to help eliminate barriers to employment. Golden LEAF funds will be used for personnel and program-related and administrative expenses. Entities that help implement and fund the program are expected to sustain it after the grant term.
