The Helen Bader Foundation has awarded UCP-SEW’s Employment Services program a grant of $40,000 to expand its work with job-seekers with disabilities living in six of Milwaukee’s poorest zip codes.

The Bader Foundation recently switched the thrust of its economic grants to bridging the persistent disconnect in the region between the chronic unemployed and jobs that go unfilled for lack of willing or qualified candidates.
