Workforce Heroes Program

Workforce Heroes Program

Para español clic aquí ->Programa de Héroes de la Fuerza Laboral

The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Louisiana in a Partnership with Delta Administrative Services announced a new initiative to support the community impacted by COVID-19 by recognizing Workforce Heroes. This program consists of placing impacted individuals into jobs for six to eight weeks at a time to help return displaced workers back into the workforce and to help stimulate the economy. The program is generously funded by Delta Administrative Services, long time partners of HCCL who share the interest of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Louisiana in helping those who are most affected by the current situation.

One of the recent hires by the program is Anabelle, who was placed in a customer services position at Metairie Bank. You can refer individuals who have been impacted by the pandemic and you would like to see returning to the workforce. 

The Hispanic community has been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic in different areas including health, access to capital, and unemployment.  As the largest Hispanic business organization, we felt the need to respond to the urgency to help individuals without gainful employment. The Workforce Heroes Program is only one of the actions taken by our organization in response to COVID-19. During this extraordinary time, it is important to remember that there is strength in community, and supporting each other through hardship is how we will rise together.

To apply to be eligible for this initiative, please fill out the following form: Workforce Heroes Application
