MHANJ-Ocean had two outstanding events today to assist those facing barriers to employment that were both an amazing success!! First was a local job fair that had 10 local employment vendors including: Ladacin Network, Alternatives, Inc., NCOA, Allies, MHANJ-Consumer Connections, Acutecare Health, Santander Bank, The NJ Re-Entry Program, JFK Health, and Accu Staffing. Over 25 Ocean County residents attended this event with 50% getting face to face interviews on the spot! The second event today was Suit Up for Success that offers free interview attire to Ocean County residents. Over 20 pieces of interview attire were disbursed to its attendees today. Since 2015, Suit Up for Success has distributed over 1300 pieces of interview attire FREE to Ocean County residents to Suit Up for Success and help find employment. Both of these events were provided by the Tools for Success Program of MHANJ-Ocean. WFNJ program that trains and educates our clients to succeed in the work environment. Clients receive comprehensive training in all aspects of employment. Also receiving training in Customer Service and Sales from the National Retail Federation Foundation. The Mental Health Association in New Jersey-Ocean County provides participants with the tools necessary to go through this transitional time in their lives. The goal of this program is not just to get them employed, but to make sure individuals are established within the community to retain employment and be confident. Tools for Success currently holds a 90% employment success rate. Many kudos to the Tools for Success Team and local community partners that allowed these events to have such an impact on the community.
