How Oscar & Ma Helps the Community
Providing Employment Opportunities
Oscar & Ma’s Mission is to create jobs for those from underserved communities.
A portion of our staff is hired from the underserved community, providing training and local job opportunities including a program for personal and professional development, training, engaging with case managers, and exposure to a professional environment. They leave with a well-rounded set of skills, ready to continue their professional careers.
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in increased unemployment, disproportionately among marginalized and underserved populations. Oscar & Ma’s mission is to create a workplace where people who need job opportunities can receive on-the-job training and experience in a professional field.
Working with other non-profit partners to help us find, train, and mentor employees, Oscar & Ma generates apprentice-like opportunities for people with barriers to employment, including the formerly incarcerated, foster youth, the unhoused, and survivors of domestic violence, teaching skills and providing a pathway to future employment.
We are currently raising funds to employ second chance staff.
“We are very pleased to be working with Oscar & Ma who is helping provide employment opportunities for Casa Teresa’s residents and alumni. Having a local non-profit like Oscar & Ma offer jobs and career training is a great asset to the women we serve.”
Lisa Wood Chief Executive Officer, Casa Teresa
