REAL PEOPLE. REAL JOBS. REAL OPPORTUNITY.

People living in and around the public housing communities in Richmond’s East End are hard at work, yet the poverty level remains high. Why? They’re stuck in entry-level jobs that can’t sustain their families.

Our Mission

RE:work RICHMOND’s mission is to prepare and connect heads-of-household in the East End
with the right family-sustaining careers.

Our Comprehensive Approach Makes the Difference

Highly Individualized: Based on each Member’s gifts and skills, we develop a strategy that will not just get a job, but ultimately lead to the right family-sustaining career.

Collaborative: We work with many partner organizations to find candidates with the drive to become self-sustaining. Together, we then ensure that candidates get the support they need––housing, childcare, and more–from the organizations that already do it best.

Financial Component: Financial coaches work one-on-one with Members to plan for sustainability.
We have funds available to address short-term financial hurdles that would inhibit sustained employment.

Good Neighbor Network: Volunteers throughout Richmond provide a strong support network to keep Members on the upward path to financial sustainability.

Long-term Success: Our commitment to family-sustaining careers means a long-term commitment to each Member.We measure real results through financial metrics as well as each Member’s progression along the City of Richmond’s Crisis to Thriving continuum.
