There are two major obstacles standing in the way for people living on the streets who want to move forward—housing and employment. We pride ourselves in our innovative programming designed to help our guests secure fulfilling and sustainable employment opportunities.
Our vocational rehabilitation program Building Futures is designed for individuals using our services who require help finding employment. Building Futures determines current skill levels and establishes realistic goals in order to support each participant on an individual basis. Participants begin with a comprehensive assessment, and are then assisted in acquiring the pre-employment, educational and vocation skills that are specific to their employment goal. Throughout the process participants identify and build on their strengths while addressing challenges and obstacles in order to secure employment.
M.O.S.T. is a cornerstone within Building Futures. It is our temporary employment program for Siloam Mission`s community members ready to take the first steps back into the workforce. The program incorporates a structured work experience with beautifying public spaces in Winnipeg’s downtown core. This provides participants with opportunities to build confidence, develop employment skills, gain a sense of purpose, and earn an income, all while fulfilling a practical cleaning need in the downtown area.
