First Step Job Training Program by the Coalition of the Homeless
The Coalition’s First Step Job Training Program was launched in 1991 to give homeless and low-income women the training, social support, education, and work experience they need to overcome those obstacles, empowering them to build a better life for themselves and their families.
First Step offers six 14-week classes serving roughly 200 women per year. Their innovative curriculum includes over 100 hours of computer instruction, along with literacy workshops, communication, and interpersonal skills development, and other hands-on activities that give students a thorough and practical understanding of the job market and workplace.
First Step also places students in internships with major corporations or non-profit organizations and offers ongoing mentoring by experienced professionals.
