Offering hope through work

 

Offering Dignity Through Work

The Well Works program provides work opportunities to empower individuals struggling with instability in their lives.  Team members in the program focus on learning work skills, learning life skills, removing barriers, and building long-term stability to transform their lives and the lives of their families.   Team members find dignity while earning a paycheck performing light manufacturing work for local businesses with the long term goal to graduate from the program and work for those businesses. 

Local business contracts include:

  • Vermeer,
  • LDJ,
  • Ring-O-Matic,
  • GT Midwest,
  • Kness and
  • more are in the queue.

Testimonial from a Getting Ahead & Well Works client

"Learning about the parent, child voice helped me work with my kids and helped me talk to them a lot easier when they are in trouble. The hidden rules really showed me the insight of what to expect in an interview and helped me to be more prepared and kinda know what to expect when I get through the Works program. I also learned about the Well Works program and the wonderful people here that didn't look at me for my background, but looked at me more as human being and gave me a job and a new opportunity in life that I needed."
