Elijah House Foundation is a proud sponsor of our Work Crew Program. We provide transitional employment through litter abatement services in partnership with several County and State agencies.
In addition to transitional employment, our program is also designed to reduce recidivism using evidence-based methods and practices to guide participants through relearning habits that make great employees, starting with the basics of communication and computer literacy.
Elijah House Foundation has successfully operated work crews since 2019, and expanded the number of crews in 2022. Work crews consist of 6 to 8 local crewmembers, a driver, a transport van, and one certified utility trailer.
If you see our work crews in your communities, let them know how much you appreciate the work they are doing to keep our communities safe and clean.
Elijah House Foundation has work crews in the following counties throughout Northern California:
- Contra Costa
- El Dorado
I was released from jail on July 17, 2020, and I had nowhere to go and no clue what I was going to do. I wound up going to the Elijah House looking for a place to stay. That is when I found out about the work crew program that helped change my life around and get it back on the right track. For someone who made a couple bad choices and found myself having to rebuild my life, the program was a life saver. The help and encouragement I’ve received will never be forgotten. I’ve received training that will help me in the future at any job. I’m so grateful.– Jesse W., Work Crew Program Graduate
