Career and Recovery Resources


CRR, a United Way agency, exists to help people to identify and overcome barriers to employment including the barrier of chemical dependency. In 2006 we served 6,294 youth and 11,984 adults including over 4,700 hurricane evacuees. We provide employment assistance through educational groups, individual instruction and coaching with specific curriculums for people who are homeless, literacy-challenged, older workers, ex-offenders, at-risk teens, hearing-impaired, recovering substance abusers, HIV-positive, hurricane evacuees, or persons coping with disabilities including amputated limbs, cancer, stroke, anxiety, and bi-polar disorder. Our clientele is 49% African-American and 31% Hispanic. 62% come to us earning under $5000 a year. After receiving our help the average client placement wage is $9.71 per hour. Our program emphasizes recognition and development of job-related skills, identification of job opportunities, self-marketing, staying employed, and advancing in the job.
