Because many people are concerned about how employment will affect the benefits they receive, we can provide you with a benefits analysis. You get a clear picture of how much you can earn before your benefits are affected. Plus we can outline the safety nets available to regain your benefits should you become unemployed.

Finally, CommunityWorks! builds relationships with our community: the people we serve, families and guardians, schools, community agencies and organizations, and most importantly, employers. Working together, we can build a good life for everyone in Hancock County.
