We Get by With a Little Help From Our Community

Seed to Oaks would not be the organization it is today without the support of so many from within the church and community. Similarly, Job One would not be able to place over 100 candidates into stable jobs without the support of second chance employers and businesses. We would like to extend our gratitude to a few of our special partners that have directly affected our ability to provide the best career services and opportunities.

The Louisville Urban League, a non-partisan, non-profit organization that seeks to provide social and economic opportunity for minority individuals, is a huge support to Job One and Seed to Oaks. We are incredibly lucky to work closely with them. The Urban League helps us mitigate the barriers that marginalized populations face when navigating the workforce.

The Kentucky Career Center (KCC) is another proponent of employment equality in the Louisville area. The KCC was an invaluable resource during 2020 as many of our former and current job seekers have grappled with the stress of unemployment and how to receive benefits during pandemic shut downs.

The Department of Corrections (DOC) in downtown Louisville is an organization that we are in contact with frequently. As a leading program serving those with criminal backgrounds who need a job, maintaining a positive relationship with the DOC is vital to open communication about the candidates we serve. We are thankful for the professionalism and patience that the DOC exhibits and grateful for their devotion to second-chance employment.

Along with these three phenomenal partners, Job One is supported by countless other individuals and organizations that allow us to make the impact that we do. We hope that we can continue to partner with these organizations, and the community, for many years to come. If you would like to learn more about partnering with Job One, please contact Nikki Walker at nwalker@seedtooaks.com.
