The mission of the Employment Program at Chicago House is to increase income and self sufficiency for people living with HIV/AIDS and those at risk. Training, career counseling, mentorship, and internship opportunities are provided to help individuals achieve greater self-sufficiency and productivity, ultimately leading to successful employment.
The program is the only one in the Midwest designed specifically to provide employment services that are responsive to the unique needs of people living with HIV/AIDS and those at risk. The program design includes a four-week intensive employment preparation that addresses the unique barriers that people living with HIV/AIDS and those at risk face when returning to work, including fear of losing benefits, discrimination and stigma, management of HIV health issues and impact on daily life, and disclosure and confidentiality in the workplace.
These concerns are especially unique among low-income minority women, gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) clients, and HIV-impacted adults who have experienced long-term unemployment. The Employment Program addresses each client’s needs individually with training and open-ended career support.
