A LegUp, not a hand out
Welcome to the LegUp!
The LegUp Program, is a creative step-by-step process that teaches people how to understand themselves, first, and then use that understanding to find and retain gainful employment. Our program holds clients accountable and empowers them to leave public assistance, and never be at-risk or homeless again. We seek job opportunities for our clients that not only provide a sustainable living wage, but also jobs they can get excited about. If they need secondary or continuing education, vocational training, or supplementary education, we want to make that happen! For us, flexibility is key. No two people have the same experience in homelessness, and no two people have the same experience being apart of the LegUp Program.
Each client’s success comes back to what they want to get out of our workshops and training. People join the LegUp for many reasons, but they stay, because they experience change in their thoughts, choices, and actions. From the first steps of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), to the final stage of depositing their first paychecks, our clients earn every bit of their success.
