Most Recent Audit
A total of 2,012 persons received holistic EMERGE services in 2012, helping them to overcome obstacles and redefine themselves. Over 1,550 people were specifically served by EMERGE's Workforce and Training programs. 821 unemployed and under-employed persons achieved gainful employment at 354 separate employers. In job retention studies, 73% of persons placed in jobs in 2011 retained employment for one year. In addition, over 270 people attended EMERGE financial education courses, with nearly 170 implementing savings and spending plans. Also, EMERGE Villages provided safe, stable housing and holistic services to 65 formerly homeless families, or 222 people. Over 70% of these households increased their income or benefits during the year, with the majority successfully transitioning into stable, permanent housing.
