WorkAble, a partnership of Jewish Family & Children's Service of Pittsburgh (JF&CS), North Hills Community Outreach (NHCO) and South Hills Interfaith Ministries (SHIM), will hold a career fair for unemployed and underemployed adults throughout the Pittsburgh region on Wednesday, Sept. 18, from 9 a.m. to noon at SHIM's offices in Bethel Park.
The fair will include employers from Giant Eagle, Lifesteps, PNC, St. Clair Hospital, the University of Pittsburgh and others. Individuals wishing to attend must register in advance by calling SHIM at 412-854-9120.
Launched in the fall of 2012 and supported by the United Way of Allegheny County, WorkAble is a county-wide employment and critical needs service for financially struggling adults, especially those newly struggling and those who are one event away from crisis.
WorkAble serves unemployed and underemployed individuals throughout Allegheny County at SHIM offices in Bethel Park, NHCO sites in Allison Park and Millvale Borough, and JF&CS offices in the Squirrel Hill area.
"The program calls on the strengths of each of our organizations and allows us to collaborate based on our common model of operations to provide geographically convenient, consistent, high-quality services and provide a one-stop shop to those in need," said Linda Ehrenreich, JF&CS' chief operating officer and director of its Career Development Center.
Those who are struggling and need assistance can call the WorkAble hotline at 412-904-5993 or visit www.workableac.com.
