Connecting Henry hosts bi-monthly Community Collaborative meetings bringing together partners from non-profits, faith-based, government, public agencies, civic organizations, and businesses. The purpose of the meetings is to address issues within the county that affects us all and develop solutions to enhance the quality of life in Henry County. We envision a community where collaborative partners work together to provide critical resources that ultimately empowers families to become stable and self-sufficient.
INSPIRE BENEVOLENCE PROGRAM
The Benevolence Network is a collaborative, on-going, year-round program that provides subsistence aid to unemployed, working poor, and disabled families experiencing hardships through support and partnerships with local churches, community organizations, other non-profits, and the school system.
We ensure families do not fall through the cracks by wrapping our arms around that individual/family and providing them with resources and support.
We also offer personal connections to food pantries, clothes closets, and furniture resources. Our goal is to restore their hope while helping families in getting back on their feet.
INSPIRE EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM
The INSPIRE Employment Training Program, geared towards low income, unemployed, underemployed, and unskilled individuals, teaches individuals the skills necessary to get a job and keep a job.
This program is designed for those individuals with a history of long term unemployment or job-hopping, and minimal experience in the workforce.
This model is successful as it addresses soft skills, resumes, credit, habits, beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors that can cripple an individual’s ability to move into a livable wage career.
