Our model in action.
Through our Better Work partnership program, we train, equip and support local churches as they start their unique Job Fair Ministry within their church. Anacostia River Church held its first Job Fair under our new model, and it was a huge success!
315 people came through the doors
47 people were on the spot hires
355 scheduled or conducted interviews
Job seekers lined up around the block looking for opportunity.
Job Fair in full swing
Volunteers from Anacostia River Church offered one-on-one resume feedback to job seekers at their recent job fair.

“In a poor inner-city community, the greatest asset or currency is hope. Honestly, participating in a Better Together job fair ranks as one of the top two or three ministry experiences I’ve ever had. We’re excited to partner again to see if we can’t give hope to many more of our neighbors!”
