The Hispanic Family Center has continuously taken a leadership role in coordinating efforts with other community organizations to facilitate the provision of services to individuals and families in need. In seeking to fulfill its mission, the Hispanic Family Center has been providing workforce development and job training services to the community in various capacities throughout most of its history. Each of its programs promotes and encourages self-sufficiency.
HFC has an on-site Job Developer who assists Camden County residents with preparing for, searching for and ultimately, obtaining employment. The Job Developer serves as a single point of contact for consumers looking for work and employers in search of qualified candidates; working to match qualified candidates with appropriate job opportunities. Services provided include: development of a Career Action Plan; resume assistance; job placement services; interview prep and soft skill coaching; as well as financial literacy workshops and coordinated onsite job fairs.
The Hispanic community has rapidly become the largest minority group in New Jersey, representing 18% of the State’s total population. However, despite significant growth there are many challenges that face Hispanic families. Studies have shown that the economy has had a disproportionate effect on the Hispanic community.
To that end, the Hispanic Family Center serves as one of three statewide Empowerment Centers, which provides intensive workforce development services to adults and dislocated works in Hispanic communities across Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester and Ocean counties. HFC’s Empowerment Center provides intensive workforce development services through regionalized services which promote increased levels of worker self-sufficiency. The organization has sites in both Camden and Gloucester County, with additional partners throughout the region.
