Daily Work

Mission Statement

Daily Work’s mission is to provide the employment services and mentoring our job seekers need to thrive, resulting in a community where everyone can work, grow, and contribute.

Impact and Programs

Accomplishments Daily Work supports early-stage job seekers in developing the skills and experience needed to break away from part-time, sporadic, low-paid employment and transition to financially-stable career pathways. Research shows that as incomes rise, graduation rates, annual wages, and health status improve, while the need for public assistance, arrest records (men), and teenage pregnancies decrease. Research by CDF-MN shows that as little as $1,000 more in yearly income in early childhood has proven to improve academic outcomes.” At Daily Work we provide case management and mentoring services to help job seekers resolve barriers that are interfering with finding a job, keeping it, or getting a better one. The people served by Daily Work are among the most vulnerable. In 2017, 80 percent of job seekers were immigrants with beginning English language skills, 84 percent had household incomes below $30,000, 42 percent were unemployed, and 11 percent were homeless. We provide services mostly using interns and volunteers. Last year, volunteers and interns contributed more than 6000 hours, the equivalent of 3 FT employees. Their efforts helped 210 job seekers get on the path to better work and financial stability. We know at least 50 percent of job seekers obtained new work that paid an average $14/hour and as much as $31.00 per hour. Over the past 5 years, with just over half a million dollars, Daily Work's social work interns and volunteers mentored more than 1,200 job seekers who generated potential earnings of more than $20 million dollars.
