The last thing on someone’s mind when they are unemployed is to consider buying a new home. However, a local Triangle nonprofit organization Band Together NC is doing their part to help the unemployed find employment by teaming up with StepUp Ministry, so that they can once again consider purchasing a new home. Band Together was formed in 2001 after five friends came together after the tragic September 11th bombing of the World Trade Center wanting to do their part to help. Band Together hosts musical performances in order to raise money to help various charities. StepUp Ministry is their 2010 charity recipient.
Over 950 adults have gained employment through the StepUp Ministry job training program since 2004. The success rate of this job placement outreach is phenomenal with over 83% of graduates remaining employed longer than six months. StepUp Ministries main focus is to provide individuals and families with a second chance in life, by supporting their commitment to be independent and productive in the community. With the help of the job training program an unemployed Triangle resident can expect to receive one-on-one client mentoring along with employer support. The Triangle area is blessed to have a great agency to help support the areas unemployed, especially when Wake County’s unemployment rate just recently reached 9.2%.
