New Haven Works gave me a sense that there are jobs, and people are interested in employing city residents. I think that’s very important, because people who work in New Haven and live here are invested in the city.
The more I was connected to New Haven Works, I learned that they were also talking to other agencies and organizations, which to me is extremely helpful. For those who are unemployed, as I was, that connection is really important.
New Haven really has a need for building up our employment and employing people here who are invested in our community and pay their taxes, so they can do what they need to do to support their city.
