BENEFITING: JOBS FOR LIFE INC
Jobs for Life Day for Dignity
Right now, 43 million people in the U.S. live below the poverty line, that’s 1 out of 7 of us. Millions more don’t earn enough to take care of themselves or their families. Most people are poor because they either do not work or work too few hours to move themselves and their children out of poverty. And many just don’t know how to work.
A lack of work leads to devastating consequences – poverty, homelessness, crime, ex-prisoners going back to prison, domestic violence, divorce, depression, debt, and vicious attacks on one’s dignity, value and purpose. Too many times, in an effort to help, we offer handouts that rarely change people’s situations and actually do more harm than good.
Join a movement of people across the country who want to love their neighbors by giving them what they really need…the dignity of work.
Pick a day of work and adopt it as your Day for Dignity. Then, you and those you invite give up that day’s pay (or a portion of it) to help people in need learn and experience the dignity of work. 100% of the money you raise goes to equip churches and community ministries across the country to teach men and women God’s design for work and help them find and keep meaningful employment.
