LMHA Starts Jobs Plus Program

Sojourner’s Truth Staff

The Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority has received a $2.3 million grant for their Jobs Plus program that will help low-income public housing residents of Birmingham Terrace and Ravine Park secure higher-paying jobs. LMHA staff and residents celebrated the kick-off of the program with back to school event at Ravine Park on Friday, August 16.

Jobs Plus will assist public housing agencies in developing locally-based, job-driven approaches to increase resident earning and advance employment outcomes through work readiness, employer connections, job placement and educational opportunities.

One of the benefits of the Jobs Plus program is that successful completion by a resident and entry into a job will keep the LMHA rent stabilized for an extended period of time.

The Jobs Plus team will help identify underlying issues residents have such as fear of failure, childcare options and assistance and will also work on transportation solutions.

Employment services, education services, supportive services and youth services are all part of the Jobs Plus program
