Breakthrough helps individuals find and keep a meaningful job.

At Breakthrough, we know that finding and keeping a job is key to helping individuals gain confidence and break the cycle of poverty in their lives. We work with each individual to assess job readiness, find the proper fit for their skills and interests, resume and interview assistance, and continued support after employment is obtained. Our multifaceted approach includes:

Job Training

Breakthrough provides individuals with the tools they need to gain and keep meaningful employment. Our program includes office and maintenance volunteer opportunities, food service training, and the development of customer service skills. Our training focuses on job readiness and self-awareness.

Transitional Employment (TE) Program

Breakthrough’s Transitional Employment program consists of part-time, entry-level, and time-limited jobs for members who work with the support of Clubhouse staff. These jobs are designed to provide one-to-one support and help people become accustomed to working regular hours.

Supported Employment

Breakthrough utilizes various models to assist individuals in finding and maintaining long-term employment befitting their skill sets and interests. Our trained Benefits Counselors address individual concerns about returning to work, teach job search tools, develop relationships with employers, teach problem solving skills, and provide job coaching support.

If you or someone you love could benefit from our services, email (info@breakthroughwichita.org), call, or stop by today. Let us help you break through the cycle of unemployment and achieve a fuller, healthier tomorrow.
