Justice Partner – Day Worker Center of Mountain View
The Justice Partner for August is The Day Worker Center of Mountain View.
The Day Worker Center has two main areas of service. They serve hundreds of local homeowners and businesses by providing job–matching services to day labor, and (most important from the justice perspective) serve the immigrant community by matching them with those jobs. They are committed to providing tools to empower day workers (mostly immigrants from Mexico and Latin America) as members of this community. They seek to help workers enter more fully into the life of the community by offering classes in English as a Second Language (ESL), GED, computer and job skills, and sewing. (web site)
