Word of Hope Ministries, Inc. (WOHM) was recently welcomed a packed house of employers to its 6th annual Employer Appreciation and Awards Breakfast.
Word of Hope Ministries, Inc. took a moment to say “thank you” to the many employers who have partnered with the agency over the past 12 months during it’s Employer Appreciation and Awards Breakfast.
Word of Hope Ministries, Inc. is a sixteen year old faith-based community ministry located at the intersection of North 40th and Center Street. WOHM was founded by Bishop C.H. McClelland who is the Bishop of the Holy Cathedral Church of God in Christ and is also a Retired Human Services Administrator and Social Worker for Milwaukee County.
It has become a prominent social service agency that has positioned itself as one of the best workforce resources in the city for businesses interested in connecting to the many qualified and under utilized minority job seekers in Milwaukee.
Annually Word of Hope Ministries, Inc. has hosted an Employer Appreciation and Awards Breakfast as a way to say thank you to all the local employers who have committed to working hand in hand with Word of Hope Ministries, Inc. to create employment opportunities for the hundreds of clients who receive employment counseling and placement assistance yearly through WOHM.
The theme of this year’s event was “Developing Milwaukee’s Future Workforce Needs through Positive Collaborations and Connecting Partnerships.” WOHM representatives gladly accepted several hiring pledges and referrals of like minded businesses that could be contacted to help build WOHM’s positive employer network.
This year’s Employer Appreciation & Awards Breakfast featured speaker was Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele. County Executive Abele spoke about the challenges that Milwaukee has faced recently, his plan for the future and how the services offered by WOHM and the partnerships that Word of Hope Ministries, Inc. has built in the community are the key to revitalizing the city.
