Employment Service Providers work with clients in the Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) or Diversionary Work Program programs.
MFIP is the State of Minnesota’s Welfare-to-Work Program. The City of Minneapolis has been a partner in the welfare to work programs since the late 1980's. Hennepin County continues to rely on the Minneapolis Employment & Training Program to assist in administering the program. Services and activities are available through a network of 18 Employment Service Providers who assist MFIP participants obtain and retain employment.
Each of the Employment Service Providers provides an overview of services, and an assessment of the individual’s skills, aptitudes and problem areas. Providers develop an employment plan, schedule job club meetings, assist with job placement, and follow up after job placement. Most Providers also teach the soft skills needed in the workplace and give referrals to subsidized and unsubsidized work experience. When appropriate, individuals are referred to job skills training. Additional work activities such as Adult Basic Education (ABE), Functional Work Literacy (FWL) and English as a Second Language (ESL) training will be provided as required.
These pages were created for the needs of the Employment Service Providers to work with clients in the MFIP or Diversionary Work Program programs. We hope that the job counselors find it useful in their day to day duties.
