THE STORY:

Goodwill’s Micro-Enterprise/Self-Employment Services Program.

 

This program presents an opportunity for persons with disabilities to gain financial equity often not available through employment in entry-level positions.  Self-employment services provide supports that lead an individual toward earning income directly from one’s own business, trade or profession, rather than as salary or wages from an employer.

 

The 2013 Census estimates that the population continued to decline in both Genesee (-2.4%) and Saginaw (-1.8%) counties from 2010 - 2013, as well as grew older, on average. In addition, the City of Flint’s current population estimate has fallen below 100,000 persons, the lowest since the 1920’s, and is projected to fall another 33% by 2040. This decline, plus a dramatic drop in manufacturing activity, has permanently reduced revenue and employment opportunities in our territory’s two major population centers.  Goodwill’s assigned service area continues in large part to lag behind the national economic recovery, limiting vocational placement and assessment opportunities for people served. Mandated wage and benefit increases further limit such opportunities. The existence of multiple employment barriers for many requires a different approach to programs and services.

 

The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in Michigan.  By supporting Goodwill’s self-employment services, you have an opportunity to shine a light on small business right in our communities.  Thank you.
