Community Action Center of Northfield (CAC)

Fulfilling our neighbors' basic needs


Dave Phillips Kicks-off Northfield Works

April 24, 2014

Dave Phillips, co-founder of Cincinnati Works, will visit Northfield on April 30 and May 1 to help the Community Action Center inaugurate our new employment program, Northfield Works.  In researching employment models,  Cincinnati Works stood out because the program is more than job training and placement.  The program offers physical, emotional, intellectual, and even spiritual support to lift members from poverty to self sufficiency.  The program assesses and addresses barriers to employment, so members are successful in gaining and retaining employment.   Members then  receive continuing mentoring and access to supports for as long as they choose. Dave Phillips will meet with area employers on Wednesday evening.  On Thursday morning Dave with have  breakfast with funders, colleagues, other providers followed by a noon meeting with Northfield Rotary.  If you would like more information on Northfield Works, please contact us.
