CareerSource Polk’s $500,000 Grant Approved for T.O.T.A.L. H.E.A.L.T.H. MATTERS Initiative

POLK COUNTY, Fla. (May 2, 2024) – CareerSource Polk is thrilled to announce the approval of its grant application for $500,000 to launch the new T.O.T.A.L. H.E.A.L.T.H. MATTERS Initiative. The initiative will serve 500 eligible residents in Polk County by September 30, 2024, thanks to the support and partnership of Community Wellness by United Way of Central Florida and Polk County Indigent Health Care. Additionally, CareerSource Polk is looking for work sites to facilitate participants, at no cost to employers for the duration of the program.

This groundbreaking initiative is designed to address and improve health and wealth outcomes for young and older impoverished adults in our community. By offering positive coaching, training, education, skills development, and employment opportunities, the initiative seeks to empower participants and pave the way for their success. CareerSource Polk is committed to making a meaningful difference in the lives of those seeking employment and striving for a better future.

“We believe in the transformative power of employment to enhance quality of life,” said Stacy Campbell-Domineck, CEO and President at CareerSource Polk. “Our team is dedicated to helping our residents achieve self-sufficiency by providing comprehensive support and resources.”

CareerSource Polk is looking for work/training sites across diverse industries with companies throughout Polk County to host at least two interns. The intent is to ensure that each internship opportunity provides meaningful work experience, including key tasks related to critical job functions that would prepare our young leaders to be suitable for open positions or to be more interested in pursuing jobs in the industry.
