For some, getting a job is like trying to win a race from far behind the starting line. If you've grown up in poverty, there can be real barriers to starting on the right track.
A family crisis. A missed bill. A record. Homelessness, an abusive relationship or an addiction. Barriers to employment come in many forms.
Jobs created by LITE are for people who are struggling with barriers like these.
For many, it's simply a lack of luck and opportunity. With your help, LITE creates jobs - many of them short term job opportunities that come at the right time and lead to greater things.
Building skills, a resume and a plan are all outcomes of jobs created by LITE.
With a hand up, people who have little or no job experience get ready to work their way into independence.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, LITE is partnering with Pollock's Hardware Cooperative to help bring products from their store and from Winnipeg's social enterprises to customers. Thank you for supporting local businesses and buying social!
