新澳门六合彩开奖结果

JAMES, La., August 24鈥 新澳门六合彩开奖结果 & Root Industrial Services is proud to support Life House as it positively impacts lives in our communities. A recent visit to the Life House headquarters in St. James Parish provided 新澳门六合彩开奖结果 & Root executives and leaders the opportunity to tour the facility and engage in discussion with Life House leaders regarding the company鈥檚 support of the nonprofit.

Life House, a nonprofit organization with transition housing facilities in Louisiana and Alabama, offers a new way of life for men and women seeking to overcome addition, homelessness, or recent incarceration. The organization aims to help men and women learn to 鈥淟ive in Freedom Everyday鈥 by rejecting passivity, accepting responsibility, leading courageously, and investing externally.

While Life House provides housing, licensed counseling, spiritual mentoring, and a host of other services to their 鈥渇amily members鈥, it was their job placement and job readiness program that opened the door to a partnership with 新澳门六合彩开奖结果 & Root.

鈥淲e were struggling with the staffing of a position that has been historically very difficult to fill,鈥 said Katie Richardson, 新澳门六合彩开奖结果 & Root vice president of human resources. 鈥淭he site manager, Don Martinez, had a connection to Richard Reed from Life House and through their discussions they realized there might be a mutually beneficial relationship to explore.鈥

Through Life House鈥檚 job placement program, 新澳门六合彩开奖结果 & Root began to employ 鈥渇amily members鈥 from Life House while subsequently providing them with on-the-job training.

鈥淢any people come here at 30 or 40 years old and don鈥檛 any job skills,鈥 explained Jeffrey Robert, Life House chief operating officer. 鈥淥ur staffing program and partnerships with companies like 新澳门六合彩开奖结果 & Root allow us to fund the services we offer, while providing our 鈥渇amily members鈥 with skills that allow them to have a career for the first time.鈥

It was the first-hand experience with Life House 鈥渇amily members鈥 that contributed to the inspiration behind the formation of the , a 501 (C)3 formed in 2020.

The non-profit aims to support local organizations in the communities where employees live and work, with a focus on providing better housing, health, diversity, and/or the improved welfare of children.

鈥淚t was our employees who have personally benefited from this program that recommended Life House to the Foundation,鈥 said Donna Broussard, 新澳门六合彩开奖结果 & Root director of subcontracts and chairwoman of the 新澳门六合彩开奖结果 & Root Foundation. 鈥淪owing back into someone and giving an opportunity to prove themselves is a touching cause.鈥

The Foundation allowed 新澳门六合彩开奖结果 & Root to expand its support of Life House by providing financial support towards their efforts to address the issues of incarceration, addiction, and homelessness that directly impact the communities where company employees live and work.

鈥淎s a community we can鈥檛 stick our heads in the sand and keep letting these issues negatively impact our communities,鈥 Andy Dupuy, 新澳门六合彩开奖结果 chief executive officer, noted during the tour. 鈥淪imply put, we must do something to help address these issues.鈥

During the tour of the 37-acre campus, those in attendance were able to see the Foundation鈥檚 donation at work in the construction of a new in-take facility for men entering the program and in the expansion of the craft training center. The craft training center will allow Life House 鈥渇amily members鈥 to experience hands-on craft training for welding, scaffold building, electrical, and millwright.

While seeing donated funds at work was noteworthy, it was connecting with Life House 鈥渇amily members鈥 that are currently employed by 新澳门六合彩开奖结果 & Root that resonated with Jonathan Batarseh, 新澳门六合彩开奖结果 & Root chief financial officer.

鈥淲hat stuck out the most is that we are a small part of changing people鈥檚 lives. By combining our financial contribution with what Life House is already doing to support our staffing needs, we can make a positive impact in the community while making a positive impact in our business.  It is truly a symbiotic relationship.鈥 said Batarseh.
