- Successes include:
- High number of clients who become and remain employed, particularly poor and minority males.
- Successful interventions for former gang members who wish to become employed.
- Ongoing employee assistance program tailored to the needs of the working poor.
- More than 5,000 men and women with 80% job retention rate after one year.
