Employing Medina County (EMC) is a collaboration between United Way, local nonprofit organizations, area employers, and all willing and capable Medina County residents who are looking to advance their economic self-sufficiency through stable, long-term employment.
Using a holistic and * proven approach to increasing family stability and reducing poverty, EMC links our job-seekers (members) with area employers, while methodically addressing the myriad of barriers often faced by those who are either not employed or working hard but not earning enough to afford necessities. In Medina County, there are nearly 19,000 households who are either living in poverty or on the edge and are unable to make ends meet. Reference the ALICE study, which reveals the size and scope of financial hardship in every Ohio community
EMC is led by and funded through United Way, which receives grants and generous support from corporate and individual donors. These gifts allow us to provide EMC free of charge to our members. Poverty impacts individuals, families, and entire communities. Economically self-sufficient individuals are taxpayers, role models, and productive citizens able to provide for themselves without public assistance. Since its inception, EMC has assisted more than 200 families, impacting over 500 family members. We invite you to join us in our efforts by DONATING NOW
