Mission Receives $7,000 grant

Dec 2 2012

The Kentucky Social Welfare Foundation (KSWF) awarded Lexington Rescue Mission a grant of $7,000 for the empowerment of students in the Mission’s new Jobs for Life Program.

Jobs for Life is an eight-week course where in participants learn how to apply Biblical principles to their lives that will help them be successful in the workplace. They also receive help with their job search, writing a resume and practicing interviewing techniques.

The KSWF grant will help update the mission’s computer lab. With new computers, participants will be able to conduct online job searches, fill out online job applications, write resumes and cover letters, and to set up e-mail accounts.

This grant will provide the tools that are necessary to find a job in today’s job market and will help our graduates succeed in their search for employment.

“The Mssion is honored to receive community support from partners like the KSWF. With support like this we are able to continue to reach hearts and change lives in a real sustainable way,” said Executive Director Jim Connell.

The next Jobs for Life class will start on January 15th.
