Employment & Training

Café Joshua Job Training and Employment Center uniquely addresses the need for homeless men and women to regain economic self-sufficiency.

The program assists clients in finding and maintaining employment by offering a comprehensive job training, placement and education program for the homeless. An intensive job ready classroom, along with a combination of workshops and career coaching, provide participants with the skills and tools needed to successfully compete in today’s job market.

Upon completion of our uniquely designed classroom curriculum, clients can immediately begin utilizing the job placement assistance service and/ or apply for one of three job training programs in either Clerical, Retail or the Culinary Arts.  These particular transitional programs offer significant training time (up to 9 months) where participants receive a progressive weekly stipend and more importantly the necessary time to gain employment and achieve sustainable independence.
