THE TOOLS TO HELP YOU MOVE FORWARD

Since the creation of the Helping Hands program in 1997, we鈥檝e assisted and heard the voices of thousands of community members in need. The goal of Helping Forward is to address root causes of the financial insecurity our community members face year after year, empowering them to move forward from crisis into a sustainable future. As new therapies make it possible for more people in the community to enter and remain in the workforce, we also want to meet the need for professional development resources.

Use the buttons above to navigate to resources and courses to better understand your rights, options, and resources related to employment and finances. We hope to expand this program. Register for the Helping Forward Network and be the first to hear about new content and program announcements!

Fabiloa, Community Member“In my previous job, the company did not allow me to grow, and I feel it’s because they never understood what I needed. My mental health was greatly affected鈥.I wanted to stay and was fearful of losing my job, but at the same time my absences were unpaid, and it had a huge impact to my budget. There were times I struggled to buy groceries and to pay bills. In that job I learned to make sure I could have a secure income while I was dealing with my personal and health problems.鈥
