The Worker Crisis Fund is a partnership between the the WCCF and the Wayne Pike Workforce Alliance. The fund provides support to individuals running into barriers to employment that aren’t supported through other state and federal programs, such as car repairs and employment support.
“A little boost, in times of need, can make a major difference in the lives of local families,” said WCCF community grant writer Derek Williams. “Whether facing unexpected medical expenses, vehicle repairs or other barriers to employment, the Worker Crisis Fund and our collaborative partnership with the Wayne Pike Workforce Alliance can remove these hurdles for our neighbors experiencing economic hardships. We’d like to thank the PPL Foundation for their support of the Worker Crisis Fund and area workers in need of a hand.”
“We sincerely appreciate the support from PPL Foundation to ensure that barriers to employment are broken down for Wayne County residents,” said Ryanne Jennings, president/CEO of the WCCF.
