Silver Spring Neighborhood Center is one of four administrating agencies of Transform Milwaukee Jobs Program (TMJP).
Participants enrolled in TMJP are placed in subsidized jobs with local businesses within our collaborative network. After successfully completing six months or 1040 hours of subsidized work, participants gain unsubsidized jobs with their host employer or employment opportunities elsewhere.
Silver Spring Neighborhood Center supports each participant throughout the process by providing job coaching, assistance to address barriers (i.e. purchasing work uniforms and boots, paying for specialized training, etc.) and retention services.
TMJP staff work closely with community employers to maintain a strong relationship to create pathways for jobs with family sustaining wages.
Participants of the program must be between 18 and 64 years old at the time of enrollment and, if older than 24, must be the primary relative caregiver of a child under the age of 18. In addition, participants must have a child support order, a child welfare reunification plan or be an ex-offender, must be unemployed for at least four consecutive weeks, cannot be receiving W2 or unemployment benefits, and must have an annual household income that is less than 150% of the federal poverty guideline for the household size.
Last year, 101 Individuals have earned full-time unsubsidized positions.
SSNC partners with over 300 businesses to provide employment opportunities to men and women participating in TMJ program.
