LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) -- The La Crosse Community Foundation has given an $18-thousand grant to the Jobs for Life program.
Jobs for Life is a national program. Locally, it's run out of La Crosse's Neighborhood City Church on Seventh and Ferry Streets.
The church helps those who have previously struggled to obtain and hold jobs with updating their resumes, preparing for interviews and being good employees once hired.
Joe Bowers, the program's director, said Jobs for Life stresses "showing up on time, being a team player and learning how to resolve conflicts with co-workers."
Bowers said the program, which puts participants through 12, two-hour classes and also matches them up with mentors, costs roughly $35-thousand annually to put on. So the community foundation grant will cover more than half of its next operating budget.
