How We Can Help
The Jerome Avenue Revitalization Collaborative (JARC) is an evolving partnership where services will continue to be built and evolve. Our initial goals and services will focus on the following four components:
EMPLOYER-FACING EMPLOYMENT NETWORK
This component provides local residents (based on zip-code) with direct referrals to jobs available through the partnership’s agreements with developers, employers and partners.

If you are a business owner looking for help with your business:
This component provides local residents, business owners, and employers with support in advocating for or against changes to the community that will impact workforce or economic development in the Jerome Avenue corridor.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR LOW-INCOME INDIVIDUALS TO COMPLETE WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT TRAINING
This component provides local (low-income) residents with access to educational or workforce development training that they would otherwise not be able to afford on their own. Financial support for this component will be raised by the partnership through fundraising and other activities
