EAC Network received a generous $5,000 grant from First National Bank of New York, to support the agency’s Employment Readiness Initiative Program and EAC Network’s Light of Hope Luncheon & Golf for Good events.
The Employment Readiness Initiative (ERI) provides vocational and supportive services to homeless individuals and families of Nassau County free of charge. Program staff works in collaboration with homeless shelters in Nassau County to provide work readiness skills, employment referrals and case management services. “As a job readiness program we have a clear understanding of the tremendous barriers to employment the homeless population is facing, “said Shereen Goodson, Program Director for Employment Readiness Initiative. Individuals are provided with a comprehensive vocational assessment which assists the individual in identifying their barriers to employment and provide a plan for employment.
