CareerSource Suncoast is committed to ensuring that job seekers in Manatee and Sarasota Counties have access to financial supports as they try to acquire and keep their jobs. CareerSource Suncoast is pleased to announce that United Way Suncoast is providing the nonprofit $40,000 in emergency support. The funds are part of a more than $1.2 million of COVID-19 emergency assistance from the United Way Suncoast’s COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund being distributed to human services agencies across the Suncoast to support housing/shelter, food, childcare, financial stability and mental health services.
“This is outstanding news for our community, and we want to thank the United Way Suncoast,” stated CareerSource Suncoast CEO, Ted Ehrlichman. “I could not think of a better time for additional support to our clients.”
CareerSource Suncoast will use the funds to provide additional financial support to job seekers who need to acquire and keep a job. They will focus on getting resources directly into the hands of clients to sustain them during this pandemic while employment opportunities are extremely limited.
“It is our job to raise funds, awareness of need, and mobilize volunteers for the critical services needed during this crisis. United Way Suncoast is proud to partner with CareerSource Suncoast. This funding is immediately being put to work to support job seekers in our community” says Jessica Muroff, CEO United Way Suncoast.
