BETTER Work Network is Growing in Columbus
A Network of Partners is Growing in Columbus
Columbus, Georgia has over 11,000 citizens identifying as unemployed, but the number of available jobs is over 6,000. What’s the problem? Why are so many people not working?
Kristin Barker serves as the program manager for BETTER WORK Columbus, and provides insight as to why there’s limited job access in the area.
Through growing partnerships in Columbus, the BETTER WORK Network will meet the needs of people where it will have the most impact – in their neighborhoods. One of our partners, Jobs for Life, will utilize their sites to help address the underlying issues creating unemployment.
We know that satisfying work has the ability to restore dignity, build communities, and reduce crime.
We are excited to see so many people working together for the good of helping people.
