“We see work as helping people create dignity – there’s dignity in work. When people are responding to a crisis and trying to regain stability, often work is a key part of what people need.”

Blythe Kazmierczak, Chief Executive Officer

G.R.A.C.E. allows us to see all the organizations that are helping a person and be part of a solution. We’re able to know that their needs are being met in various ways (food, education, housing, etc) then understand and compliment the things that are already in play.

Through the G.R.A.C.E. Network, we have a longitudinal record telling us if the work we’re doing getting people connected to jobs is actually impacting their long term financial stability. It also allows us to make sure we’re making the impact on employment equity that we intend.

What’s Next for EuzenConnect?

We’re looking at partnering with workforce development programs to smart-match people to the recourses they need to build their careers. As we help folks access their ‘right now job’ we want to match them to workforce development resources so they can continue to build their career foundation.

EuzenConnect is a bridge between job-seeking individuals, employers, and community partners. They focus on equity and dignity in employment.
