Fairchance was founded in 2016 from a presidential initiative to assist local communities with jobs, career training, and upward mobility for our under-served populations. Fairchance partnerships have included the U.S. Attorney’s Office, U.S. Department of Labor, The Colorado Career Project (CCP), the State of Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE), and Colorado’s Workforce Program.
Fairchancehas garnered state and national recognition for its innovative programming as its community awards have been signed and/or co-presented by Colorado’s Governor, the U.S. Attorney, and the Director of Colorado Department of Corrections. Fairchance has also been graciously supported by organizations that include Walmart, for the support provided in many regions that are co-served by Walmart retail outlets. Fairchance benefits low income and economically-disadvantaged families by increasing access to jobs, bringing 50 to 100 new employers to their communities each month, and providing access to thousands of better-paying (over $15/hour) positions each month.
Fairchanceis the largest single provider of career access programming in Colorado and utilizes the most unique and yet effective method for assisting low-income, veteran, homeless, and justice-involved populations in Colorado. Fairchance administers monthly 50-to-100 employer career fairs, “CareerMarket” forums that directly involve several dozen school districts, colleges, and universities, and direct counseling and advisement of job candidates on sourcing education, employment, and vital life services.
