The mission is to encourage and support motivated individuals to get into their upskilling career path to earn a stronger income to better support their families.
PowerUp participants will transition from unemployment and underemployment to full, sustained employment with United Way’s Workforce Navigators acknowledging the need for a range of supportive, wraparound services to keep participants focused. The timeline will be different for each participant. Participants must be a Meriden or Wallingford resident.
**PowerUp is partially funded by the Meriden ARPA funds and Wallingford ARPA funds**
United Way of Meriden and Wallingford fund 14 nonprofit partner agencies and their wrap-around services to target motivated workers who may experience the insecurity of unmet basic needs and meet these needs.
