Our vision is to help create a community where all people can support and sustain themselves through work, and, as a result, take active roles in the lives of their families and neighborhoods, benefiting all.

We provide all services at no cost to job seekers thanks to a crew of committed volunteers and college interns who serve as case managers. Our case managers help job seekers access community resources, develop job search tools such as resumes and cover letters, and help them learn work readiness skills.

Our goal is to help each job seeker make tangible progress towards gaining employment and self-sufficiency. Due to their inability to find work, many of our clients come to us in financial crisis and emotional distress. Often, they are struggling with depression, low self-esteem, and/or significant household issues related to financial stress and/or an unsuccessful job search.

By meeting each person at their level, truly listening to their story and by working together to identify a path for advancement, we help them discover renewed hope and motivation, both internally and in the world and people around them.

At Daily Work, job seekers are not clients, but partners. This means job seekers must be active in their self-development and accountable to the process in which they are engaged in order to be successful. We believe that helping people become self-sufficient, both financially and personally, results in a better quality of life for everyone.

We build professional relationships with our clients and keep in touch with them in our best efforts. We ensure that we do not only help them with their current well-being but also guarantee that in the long-run, their future is secure.

In 2017, Daily Work served over 200 clients, here's a glimpse of the different ethnic backgrounds of the people we served:

- Women: 51.7%
- Men: 48.3%

- (US BORN) White/Caucasian: 57%
- (US BORN) Black/African American: 34%
- (US BORN) Multi-Racial: 6%
