The program is for workers in Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties who lost their job during the pandemic.

"If you're sitting at home, it's really important for you to reach out to your community. If you're not doing anything right now, and you're just sitting at home, please reach out and help your community. There's a great need out there for the employers that we have. They need your help, and this is one way to do that," said Teri Graul of CareerSource Research Coast.

Funding from recent grants is making this program possible.
