CareerSource Central Florida Resources Available to Those in Need

At Valencia, we’re fortunate that none of our colleagues need to worry about losing their employment with the College due to Hurricane Irma. Others have not been so lucky, however, and now face unemployment. But, as with other devastating situations our community has faced, Central Florida organizations are banding together to support those in need.

If you know of a student, family member or friend who lost employment due to the recent storm, please encourage him or her to visit CareerSource Central Florida — Central Florida’s workforce board — has several resources available to individuals facing hardship as a result of the storm.

Project Restore, funded by the National Dislocated Worker Grant, for example, can assist individuals who were unemployed before Hurricane Irma or lost employment due to the storm with temporary employment opportunities including administrative, humanitarian, cleanup and restoration activities. Jobs attained through this program typically last between three and six months and pay $15 per hour. For more information, click here.

Other available resources include financial assistance such as Disaster Unemployment Assistance, the National Dislocated Worker Grant and the Florida Bridge Loan Program. For more information on these programs, click here.
