2-1-1 can help in employment search
Unemployment puts a lot of stress on families. Not only is there concern about finances, but the challenges of job seeking put added pressure on relationships. Seeking out resources and assistance in the job search process can help ease some of that stress by providing much needed support.
There are job search programs designed specifically for those who receive FoodShare benefits, caretakers of minor children, veterans, and those who are considered senior citizens or disabled, to name a few. Career counseling programs are also available in our community.
United Way's 2-1-1 can help you navigate the various programs. Just dial 2-1-1 or 715-848-2255 or 1-800-922-5590 to speak with an Information Specialist, 24/7. A language interpreter service is available if needed. You can also email an Information Specialist at email@example.com, or visit our 2-1-1 webpage to search our online database or view resource publications. Resource publications are also available in the lobby of the United Way of Marathon County offices at 705 S 24th Ave, Suite 400B, Wausau.
