Work Is Good
Work is part of God’s design for his creation. It not only provides for material needs, but it also instills dignity and purpose and creates opportunities for us to contribute to community life.
Yet, in marginalized communities, significant barriers stand in the way of obtaining and keeping meaningful work. A marred identity, lack of opportunity, trauma, poor education, past incarceration, transportation and childcare issues all contribute to cycles of relational and generational poverty.
Without supportive pathways to sustainable employment, chronic unemployment and underemployment will continue to plague these communities—even when “Help Wanted” signs are everywhere.
