In the past several years, Florida has enjoyed robust job growth and an influx of new residents. Jacksonville, the Sunshine State’s largest city by population is not only one of the fastest growing in the state, but it’s also the 12th most populous city in the nation. With this rapid growth comes opportunity and also challenges.
Many who live in Jacksonville call it paradise, but for those struggling to find work, life is not quite as easy. Jacksonville still has one of the highest unemployment rates in the state of Florida and many of its residents who are new to the area lack the familial and community bonds needed to help them find employment and get back on the right path.
By working with local churches and community partners, FlourishNow is launching a series of employment workshops and job fairs to help Jacksonville residents find the jobs they need and deserve.
