Millionair Club Charity Programs
With the help of our donors and supporters, the Millionair Club Charity provides:
- Day labor and long-term temporary jobs to offer men and women an opportunity to earn a wage.
- Employment services to get people back into permanent employment. Nutritious hot meals to fuel workers for their job.
- Shower and laundry facilities to provide dignity to individuals who are homeless.
- Eye care to support readiness to work. We provide free eyeglasses and exams through our volunteer optometrists and opticians.
- Social services to open up access to other community services, including housing.
Since our founding, the Millionair Club Charity has been supported solely by private donations — with no direct reliance on government funds or taxpayer dollars. This allows us to remain self-directed and to focus on the needs of our community.Our unique strategy is a proven success, but it requires your support.
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
Our goal is to provide employment and support programs that develops economic opportunities for men and women while helping them become self-sufficient. In 2011, we dispatched more than 1,000 individual workers to 10,039 day labor jobs, providing an essential step in getting people quickly back to work.
Many of the men and women in our programs are supporting families. Nearly one-fifth of the workers in our jobs program are struggling to not only feed and house themselves, but also to provide for their children.
With support from our community, in 2011 we expanded our jobs program and add new employment services to help more individuals get on a path to permanent employment and permanent housing. These are necessary steps to providing security for their families.
The Transitional Jobs Program helps get folks on the path toward permanent employment while the Housing Assistance Program works to help our participants find a stable place to call home.
In addition to making a donation or pledging your support, you can get involved with the Millionair Club by making a planned gift through your will or living trust, by giving an in-kind gift of food, clothing or other supplies or by volunteering your time.
