Our Thrift Store was used to provide several types of volunteer work opportunities for the community including our Ministry Relief efforts for Haiti and Africa. We have student volunteers from area high schools and colleges. We also have volunteers from local churches, community groups, and individuals. We provide mentoring and counseling through court approved community service volunteer hours with emphasis on prevention of engaging in any further criminal activity. Community service volunteers have provided over 14,809 volunteer work hours to our agency Ministry Relief and Donations since 2011.
Our agency also continues to work with the youth and adult Workforce Investment Act (WIA) programs. We also serve as a work experience site. Being involved with these workforce programs provides our clients with opportunities for job mentoring, training, basic job readiness skills, and beginning to earn an income. Austin, a young local resident who participates in the workforce program shares his experience – “I started doing community service here at The Forgotten Ones two times, then I started volunteering. Then the people at The Forgotten Ones took me under their wing and found me a job in the workforce program which gave me chance to show that I am a changed person from the first time I came here.”
On October 27, 2014, we were featured on WKMG Local 6 News Making a Difference “The Forgotten Ones Helps Troubled Teens”. The story highlights how we help young adults with our services and link them with opportunities for workforce programs.
Our agency currently holds work site contracts for the 2014-2015 fiscal year with Career Source of Central Florida, Covenant House Florida Dove Program, Henkel’s & McCoy Youth Work Experience Program, and ResCare Workforce Services. We also provide temporary work assignments for injured employees to perform modified work duties by volunteering through a non-profit with Transition2Work, Non-Profit Relations, and Liberty Mutual Vocational Rehabilitation Program.
