How You Can Help Hurricane Harvey Victims?

 

  • The Red Cross depends on financial donations to help provide immediate relief. Text the word HARVEY to 90999 to make a $10 donation. You can also visit Red Cross Website or call 1-855-999-GIVE.
  • The United Way has also announced a way to text a donation: Text UWFLOOD to 41444 to donate to the United Way Flood Relief Fund.
  • Donations to support The Salvation Army's Hurricane Harvey relief efforts can be made through their website or by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY.

Give cash, not supplies
Most charities prefer monetary donations. These are more flexible and cause less of a strain on the charity, allowing them to help more people.

Business Services

  • Business Resource Center (BRC) – The BRC provides business solutions to employers at no cost to your company. We can act as an employer’s human resources by helping businesses with issues related to recruitment and training of your new employees.
  • On the Job Training (OJT) - This program provides an incentive to businesses allowing employers to receive up to 50 percent reimbursement of a new employee’s wages for a maximum amount of $4,000 for a maximum period of six months (dependent upon the complexity of the job and the employees’ current skills). OJT allows for the custom training of new employees thereby offsetting employer training costs while assisting the employee to acquire the skills necessary to satisfy job requirements.
  • Training for your existing workforce – In addition to OJT, we can also provide customized training grants to employers to help them address skills gaps in their current workforce.
  • Direct Access to Qualified Workers – Post your job openings for FREE and reach thousands of jobseekers on Jobs4Jersey.com. You can also work directly with the One-Stop to have applicants be pre-qualified to meet your specifications.
  • Recruitments & Job Fairs – Our services can help identify potential candidates by assisting in the recruiting and initial screening of candidates. This can be done at the One-Stop or employer site. All potential candidates can be pre-qualified according to employer specifications thereby saving the time and money involved in interviewing all interested candidates.
  • Tax Credits and Federal Bonding – We work with employers to provide them with detail on the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) and Federal Bonding.
