Strong Neighbor Award 2015 - Rockford Health System

Strong Neighbor Award - Rockford Health System

Campaign Chair Mike Broski presents the inaugural Strong Neighbor award to Rockford Health System during the 2014 Campaign Celebration Event held on March 10, 2015

Early in fall of 2014, Rockford Health System implemented a job readiness and work program for residents of Rockford and Winnebago County housing authorities. The program leads to an opportunity for a full-time, entry-level position at Rockford Memorial Hospital once residents complete a Job Readiness program. After completing the job readiness program, graduates receive their very own professional clothing to interview for available positions. Once hired by Rockford Memorial Hospital, residents receive a rental house within walking distance of the hospital, managed by one of the housing authorities.

Thank you, Rockford Health System, for being a vital partner to our Strong Neighborhoods initiative and for improving lives through community collaboration.
