Workforce Development

Achieve a Rewarding Career that Leads to Financial Independence and Stability

Establishing a career that meets your financial needs is an essential part of avoiding poverty and homelessness. Money and time management, budgeting, savings and other life skills are also vital to functional, responsible living.

That’s why Phoenix Rescue Mission offers comprehensive vocational and educational services to men and women who would benefit from career coaching at the two following locations in Glendale.

Professional Help to Get Back on Your Feet

In our Workforce Development program, trained staff and volunteers provide opportunities and resources that help clients obtain their GED or High School Diploma. Depending on your choices and needs, we can also help you secure grant opportunities for vocational training and further education.

Clients gain reading, math, communication and thinking skills — along with a variety of other professional abilities, career guidance, resume and interview preparation and more — that thoroughly equip them for workforce success.

Just as important, men and women who participate in the Mission’s Workforce Development program receive help as they search for employment. As an HEAplus Community Partner, we can also help you apply online for AHCCCS Health Insurance, Nutrition Assistance (formerly Food Stamps) and Cash Assistance.
