The Helen Bader Foundation has awarded UCP-SEW’s Employment Services program a grant of $40,000 to expand its work with job-seekers with disabilities living in six of Milwaukee’s poorest zip codes. 

“We all know that people are unemployed, but the system treats unemployment as a one-size-fits-all situation and that’s not the reality of it,” said Jerry Roberts, workforce development program officer for the Helen Bader Foundation.

The Bader Foundation recently switched the thrust of its economic grants to bridging the persistent disconnect in the region between the chronic unemployed and jobs that go unfilled for lack of willing or qualified candidates.
