What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In the competitive job market, many people experience barriers to employment, including: lack of education, little to no work history, limited access to employment resources, and disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds.

Pathways to Employment

Neighborhood Thrift seeks to use our business as a classroom for life. We currently work with several programs including Fresno City College Federal Work Study and the Fresno County Calworks department to provide on-the-job training to those with barriers to employment. We provide the setting for skills to be worked out and expectations of being an employee to be acknowledged.

Launched in January of 2020, Neighborhood Street Cleanup is designed to address barriers to employment faced by low-income people, with a specific interest in serving Fresno’s unhoused and precariously housed populations living in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty, while also addressing waste management issues in Fresno’s Tower District.

A “low barrier to entry” concept is fundamental to this program, in that the only standard for individuals to get and keep a job is regular attendance during their scheduled working hours. There is no other required work experience or prerequisites to obtain the job. In addition to providing a regular paycheck to individuals that have experienced long-term unemployment, NSC also provides individuals with valuable work history and experience to add to their resumes by helping them to develop the soft skills that will allow them to move on to higher paying jobs, and better opportunities with other employers upon program completion.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Neighborhood Industries goal is empower people to overcome the barriers to employment that they face, and become ready to enter the workforce.

Neighborhood Industries operates social enterprises as the classrooms and training ground to address barriers to employment; by providing tutoring, counseling, on the job training, and work experience. Neighborhood Industries builds a person up, through education and employment experience, to empower them to be job ready.

Currently, Neighborhood Industries operates two social enterprises, Neighborhood Thrift and Neighborhood Recycling, which is where the job training and work experience is facilitated. Along with the job training, Neighborhood Industries also provides program participants with group and one-on-one counseling with our onsite social worker. In addition, Neighborhood Industries contracts tutors to provide literacy and math tutoring.

This past year, Neighbrohood Industries distributed over $650,000 into Fresno's neighborhoods experiencing the highest rates of concentrated poverty, one paycheck at a time. Prepared 30 individuals to enter the workforce, which has allowed them to be positive contributors in their home and neighborhood.

Data
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
