Southwest Works

In the summer of 2016 the Southwest Partnership and the Mayor’s Office of Employment Development partnered to staff and fund Southwest Works. The SWP was able to leverage the $20,000 workforce grant from the Bunting Foundation towards a full time MOED staff member who would serve only the Southwest Partnership area neighborhoods. The Local Development Council for the Horseshoe Casino Impact Area provided the rest of the funding, and the program and position are fully funded for one year.

Southwest Works provides anchor institutions and other employers a single point of contact to recruit area residents for available jobs, while ensuring that the residents who are participating in the program are qualified and job-ready. A full time Career Navigator recruits and screens residents, liaises with employers, and develops partnerships with workforce providers, job training programs, and local institutions and businesses, and maintains a database of community members looking for work.
