We did it! We obtained funding to launch the MatchUp program. First, let me acknowledge the Bader Foundation and express our immense appreciation of their support. Second, if you don’t know what MatchUp is, check out this video on our YouTube channel…https://youtu.be/hR4sljN1SvA.
And third, and most importantly, this funding gives us the ability to hire a part-time MatchUp Coordinator. Keeping in line with the benefits of MatchUp, the job description of this position emphasizes the social, physical and emotional benefits. The process of matching through the program also focuses not just on the duties of a job, but the values of the employer, both as an organization and from the perspective of the job, as well as the values of the each MatchUp candidate. You’ll note in the job description being shared here that it lists the values that intends to “match” with the person being considered for the position.
We are so excited to bring this valuable program to the Door community! If you are interested in being considered for this great position, please contact us right away. We want to get started as soon as possible.
