Cincinnati Works is a great charity! I have had a pleasure of working with them for about two years. The impact that they have on individual lives is tremendous. Their workshop gets people in poverty encouraged and excited about getting a job. It teaches how to find a job, how to interview, how to succeed once on the job - things that simply aren't taught in school. I've volunteered to do mock interviews and you can see the hope that these folks have from Cincinnati Works. Then their job placement program works closely with corporations across the area to find and match the right job. Finally, they continue to support the whole employee for the long term with other services like financial counseling, mental health counseling, job support, and much more. The best was seeing a member with a brand new apartment key around his neck that came from his hard work. This is truly teaching people how to fish. I am a volunteer and a financial supporter. ---Matt---
