CAPLP Career Connect
by Lakes & Prairies Community Action Partnership, Inc. (CAPLP)Region 5 · Moorhead, MN
The CAPLP Career Connect initiative is a project that connects low-income people with high-demand, living-wage careers. Through a partnership with the local community college, the project targets families unable to participate in traditional employment programs, providing technical and soft skills necessary for success in the workplace. The CAPLP Career Coach works alongside families every step of the way, assisting them in addressing challenges and helping them attain and maintain employment. This whole family workforce model seeks to break the inter-generational cycle of poverty by moving the family toward economic security, all the while addressing the need for a skilled labor force.
