CPLC Workforce Solutions

Chicanos Por La Causa (CPLC) has emerged as one of the leading nonprofit workforce development teams by marrying its innovative use of technology, social media, and bilateral communications with its institutional stability, grassroots reach, and record of leadership in the communities it serves. CPLC also knows that an individual's economic and personal health are interrelated, and recognizes the presence of certain obstacles such as past incarcerations, teen pregnancies, behavioral health issues, substance abuse, lack of adequate health care, stable housing, and language barriers. To address these barriers, CPLC has created a continuum of care model through a referral system among internal and community partners, resource centers, and support groups that address systemic needs of program participants, allowing them to focus on their specific educational and vocational goals.
