The role of AbbotsfordWORKS is to ensure that the following vision becomes a reality:
Every person is capable of finding meaningful employment and every employer deserves to have the right employee(s) in order to be profitable.
The AbbotsfordWORKS project was initiated when a group of trusted, well-established and respected employment service organizations came together to form a strong alliance. As the partnership evolved, each weaving their own unique strengths and experience into the project development, the staff of these organizations collaboratively designed an effective model that would provide clients and employers with high quality services in the Abbotsford community.
On April 1st, 2012, the two AbbotsfordWORKS sites, carefully chosen for ease of access, opened their doors to the people of Abbotsford. The AbbotsfordWORKS team, staffed with people from the partner organizations and bringing years of expertise in delivering employment supports, came together to provide a full spectrum of services ranging from one-to-one case management, workshops and fully equipped resource rooms.
