Building Futures/ MOST

Building Futures is our vocational rehabilitation
program, designed for individuals using our services
who require assistance securing fulfilling, sustainable
employment. Building Futures determines current
skill levels to support each participant on an individual
basis through comprehensive assessment and the
facilitation of training. Participants identify and build
on their strengths while addressing challenges and
obstacles in order to secure employment. Once
employed, connections are maintained regularly with
the participant and the new employer in order to provide
encouragement and assist in a healthy transition into the
workplace and a self-sufficient lifestyle.

MOST (Mission: Off The Street Team)

A cornerstone within Building Futures, MOST
is our temporary employment program for
participants ready to take the first steps back
into the workforce. Structured experience
working on public space beautification in
Winnipeg’s downtown core provides our
participants opportunities to build confidence,
develop employment skills, gain a sense of
purpose, and earn income. MOST’s positive
experiences go beyond work, also helping to
build self-esteem through enriched social,
emotional, spiritual, and financial life skills. The
quality of work produced by the MOST teams has
been widely praised by many downtown Winnipeg
businesses and associations, reinforcing for
participants the value of the contributions they
make to our community.
