The Durham Region Unemployed Help Centre is proud to partner with DRIVEN and to support their mandate.
Fifty-one percent of DRUHC service users are women, including; single sole-support parents’, newcomers to Canada, low income, some unfortunately are victims of abuse. All are hoping to secure meaningful employment and feel empowered to envision a good future.
DRUHC helps with all stages of the job search. Thanks to Employment Ontario services we have funds allocated to give to employers to offset the initial cost of training and funds to give to eligible job seekers to remove barriers to employment such as transportation, uniforms, required tools, etc.
We also assist with applications for Second Career for career training and upgrading. Our counsellors are non-judgmental, effective listeners, and work at the comfort level of the client.
