What is Work For Success?
The Mirror Work for Success Program provides services to low-income families, such as work readiness, case management, parenting skills, financial education, and family violence prevention.
The Program begins with an intensive four-week personal and professional development training which teaches participants the skills to build healthy relationships, strengthen families and obtain employment. After completion of the training, Mirror Inc continues to work with participants to help them obtain employment. They also provide individualized case management by developing a life plan and helping participants remove barriers through referrals to community services and resources. Once participants obtain employment, they offer supported employment services including transportation assistance and conflict resolution.
