A Division Of Safe Refuge

Safe Refuge Employment Services provides on-site job placement and job training services to low-income and disadvantaged individuals re-entering the job market after an extended gap in employment. Barriers to employment could include homelessness, lack of education, absence of life skills, health issues, a criminal justice history and/or substance abuse.

We seek out permanent, meaningful employment for our clients. Our tools include employ-ability assessments, written employment plans, one-on-one employment specialist services, employment preparation training, job placement, job training and job retention services. All services are available, at no cost, to residents of Long Beach and surrounding areas.

We educate local employers on the unique challenges and rewards of hiring our clients and help them overcome their reservations. Safe Refuge Employment Services also provides mediation and conflict resolution to promote sound and stable labor relations.
