Adult Employment Services

We exist to connect our community to jobs in an effort to decrease disproportionate rates of unemployment, families relying on low-wage jobs, and significant barriers to employment in our communities of color. We seek to provide the opportunity for a stable, thriving, vibrant community in both North Minneapolis and Cedar-Riverside.

Re-Entry Services

EMERGE’s re-entry program is a continuum of services that include: financial assistance, housing resources, career coaching, career training, transitional job placement, and holistic support staff. 

The re-entry program is divided into two areas of service: RESTORE and SOAR. RESTORE is for anyone with a criminal background that is a barrier to employment. SOAR is for people who are currently incarcerated.
