Help SNAP recipients gain self-sufficiency through workforce training, 1:1 success coaching, and access to a network of employment and life resources.
WHAT WE DO
We provide comprehensive workforce-readiness training for SNAP recipients via an online platform which allows job seekers flexibility to access training at their convenience. Our four-week course allows job seekers to access proven practices for researching jobs, applying for jobs that are a match with the job seeker’s strengths, and equipping the job seeker with the tools to present ‘YOUR BEST YOU’ to win the job.
By focusing on essential soft skills like identifying and overcoming past employment obstacles, time management, teamwork, professionalism, and positivity in the workplace, the job seeker gains confidence and self-esteem which allows them to stand out in an interview process.
In summary SNAP2Jobs helps job seekers present ‘YOUR BEST YOU’ at job interviews to give them a better chance to win the job they want and move to self-sufficiency.

WHO WE ARE
SNAP2Jobs is a mission for us.
Economic Poverty. We’ve Survived It. Our team members don’t just talk about poverty, they have experienced it; from homelessness, living in shelters or living in their car. We know about addictions to drugs, alcohol and more. Our program comes from being in your shoes. Living without (you fill in the blank), not just reading about difficulties in a book. We know this is a very hard road and life often isn’t fair.
Relational Poverty. We’ve Lived It. We know what it is like to be alone. That’s why we have 1:1 Success Coaches with you every step of the way, to encourage you and be there for you when you need it.
Spiritual Poverty. We’ve Experienced It. We offer you an optional path to explore your faith. We know what it is like to try and fall back again. That’s why we believe in the God of second chances. SNAP2Jobs is open to all … any race, creed, color, and faith or no faith. Anyone on or off SNAP can join. We know the value of being grounded in something greater than yourself. We all want a fresh start. If you want to explore more of your faith journey, then just “opt-in”. “Opting -in is not a required part of the core SNAP2Jobs program – it is optional. (SNAP2Jobs uses separate funding channels to make this resource available to you.)
