Employment Assistance
One afternoon a week in CAP’s downtown Service Center, Employment Hours will be hosted by CAP’s Service Center Coordinator. Employment Hours will be open to both people living with HIV as well as members of the trans community regardless of their HIV Status. Outside of Employment Hours, people can still come to the Service Center to ask questions, as well as pick up resources around employment, education, and training. Limited financial assistance available for job-related expenses (shoes for a certain job, identification cards, tools, licensure) and program expenses (materials for workshops, participant resumes). Participants in need of financial assistance may apply during Employment Assistance Hours.
