The Neighborhood Focus for Jobs Initiative
One year after beginning the grass-roots mission, OMJ|CC’s Neighborhood Focus for Jobs Initiative carries the effort to engage residents, community leaders and organizations, and businesses of Slavic Village and Cleveland’s Wards 2, 4, 5, 6, and 12 in Program Year 2019.
Our Community Development Coordinator, Creighton Johnson, is renewing existing and developing new relationships throughout the community by bringing OMJ|CC WIOA Adult and Dislocated Worker services into these neighborhoods.
Creighton’s mission is to meet people where they are, to provide information and access to employment opportunities and training for In-Demand Career Pathways. Creighton also coordinates with the Business Services department to connect job seekers and employers in the community. Creighton is developing the trust of the community, setting expectations of service and becoming a reliable face of OMJ|CC in the neighborhoods.
