In its December issue Crain’s Detroit Business named SER Metro-Detroit, Jobs for Progress Inc. a finalist in its annual Best- Managed Nonprofit Awards. The recognition comes in part thanks to SER’s launch in 2019 of a “no-wrong-door” workforce development program to simplify the path to a job in the construction trades. SER Metro asked employers what they needed and built a training program to offer everything from soft skills like showing up to work on time to a specific certification that was needed.
SER has secured more than $4 million in grants since
the program’s inception to provide support for things
like childcare, housing, transportation, steel-toed boots, Carhartt jackets and stipends to enable participants to pay their bills and feed their families while in the program.
