On Thursday, April 6th, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, FlourishNow will host a job fair at Center Point Community Church in Naples, Florida. As part of a broader partnership between FlourishNow and Center Point Church, the job fair aims to connect those in need of work with local employers who are hiring today.
Derek Newbery, Associate Pastor of Center Point Church, believes this event will help people who live in the neighborhoods surrounding the church, as well as those in other areas of Southwest Florida, find meaningful work.
“Center Point is excited to partner with FlourishNow for this job fair because we are concerned about our community and want to help all people experience the dignity that comes through work. Work is a powerful means of using one’s gifts and strengths while also meeting one’s tangible needs.”
Megan Rose, Southwest Florida Regional Director is grateful to be able to partner with another committed local church to continue the mission of FlourishNow and put people back to work.
“More than eighty percent of the people we serve through our Safe Families for Children program are in crisis partially due to lack of financial stability. A good job is the first step for many of them to becoming independent and able to provide for their families, and our partner churches are key to helping those we serve spiritually, emotionally, and tangibly through outreach events such as this.”
More than 39 employers offering employment in fields as diverse as construction, healthcare, customer service, retail, hospitality, and more are committed to attending the job fair. Other recent hiring events hosted by FlourishNow in Southwest Florida have had a tremendous response, serving more than 1,000 job seekers.
Job coaching will also be available at a workshop prior to the event at 9:00 am. Attendees looking for assistance and coaching are welcome to join us. More details can be found here.
