Last Thursday, #CentralCityConcern''s Employment Access Center hosted a hiring event for all our clients. Nearly 70 individuals attended the fair and met with 14 local businesses, all of whom were committed to hiring individuals from the hiring event, and many of whom conducted on-site interviews. We are so grateful for the community businesses that are passionate about giving those we serve the opportunity to find employment and take a big stride forward to self-sufficiency. Many thanks to: @newseasonsmarket, #PavementMaintenanceInc, #WorkSourceOregon, @unitedsaladco, @olympiaprovisions,@marysharvest, #DePaulIndustries, @opti_staffing, @fritolay, @elephantsdeli, @carsonteam, @ups, and #UnitedCardSolutions! #portland #pdx #pdxjobs #selfsufficiency #localpdx #pdxbusinesses #employment #hiring #supportedemployment #supportiveemployment #ipsmodel

Earlier today, Central City Concern''s Twitter account participated in the #OurHomesOurVoices #Twitterstorm. To voice why we believe #affordablehousing is so important to our local, state, and national communities, we shared several core beliefs and values that inform the work CCC does in developing and maintaining affordable homes while supporting the people who live in them. #centralcityconcern #portland #pdx #portlandhousing #affordablehomes #housingishealth #housingisahumanright #nlihc #nationalowincomehousingcoaliion #housingforall
