CPLC Workforce Solutions

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