We as an organization are excited to formally introduce EECM WorkForce!

EECM recognizes the lack of opportunity (whether it be in education, employment, mental health services, housing, healthy groceries, or youth recreation) as one of the most prominent causes of poverty. We seek to be the solution to that problem not only in the East End, but in the entire Pittsburgh community.

That is where WorkForce comes in. The program is split into two parts: contract opportunities and our own brand of coffee & tea.

WorkForce offers contract opportunities in Environmental Services, Landscaping, and Snow Removal to individuals who are usually overlooked for jobs. Many of our WorkForce employees are former clients! After receiving job training and mentorship, they are able to hold full time and part time, paid positions within our organization. Because we as an agency believe that everyone has potential- some just don’t have the opportunity.

WorkForce creates one.

In addition, we have launched our own line of coffee, tea, and bottled water! The profits benefit our programs and give back to our clients, expanding our capacity to close the opportunity gap in Pittsburgh, the country, and the world.
