Partnering with the Pocono Mountains United Way, RHD’s Street 2 Feet and The Waste Authority for Pocono Community Caring Company (Pocono 3C).
Pocono 3C is a program designed to give persons who are homeless, or in danger of becoming homeless, a job and case work, to get back up on their feet. These individuals often face difficulties finding work due to not having an ID or address, not having a bank account, or having a minor criminal record, to name a few. To help them overcome these obstacles, Pocono 3C provides them with work picking up litter in Monroe County. This not only gives them an income at the end of every workday but provides them with experience and references for a résumé. In addition to the job, they will be provided lunch the days that they work and case management. Learn more on how these Pocono businesses are working together.
