For people comfortable with a more self-directed approach, we offer employment referral through our Community Employment and Education Program. Participants can meet with a referral specialist to assist them in gaining employment with area employers. We have many area employers who call us first when they have a job opening. We also offer employment referral through our Section 3 program which requires preferential hiring for low income residents related to any contracting and new construction sponsored by the Vancouver Housing Authority or the City of Vancouver.
To learn more about these programs, contact Bridgette Fahnbulleh, Community Employment Manager, at (360) 993-9556 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special employment support is available for those ages 16 to 24. These young adults often benefit from direction and skill building to maintain successful employment. Our staff works with them to define goals and connect with community partners that can provide them with the support they need to move ahead.
