Public Assistance Employment and Training Programs

RMCEP provides employment services to people who are receiving MFIP services (Minnesota Family Investment Program), are at risk for receiving MFIP or are receiving SNAP (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program).

Participants work with a specialized job counselor to achieve their employment goals.  Services include assessment, career planning and counseling, developing an employment plan, placement assistance, support and coordination of services and referral to other programs.  The Diversionary Work Program (DWP) is a short-term program designed to provide employment services to families at risk of enrolling in MFIP to achieve economic stability.

I work full time now

I work full time now, feel great about myself and setting a good example for my kids.  Staff helped me make a plan for my son who is disabled.  They made me feel like they really cared about what they were doing. ~ AN
