There were more than 8,000 open manufacturing jobs in Northeast Ohio last year, according to the nonprofit organization MAGNET. One of the more intractable problems facing manufacturers is the mismatch between the location of jobs and where entry-level workers live. Many low-income and Black workers live in Cleveland and don’t own cars, but many jobs are in the suburbs, far from public transportation. The church van program aims to bridge that gap.
Organizations across Northeast Ohio have come together to provide financial support to UBIZ Venture Capital, an Urban League of Greater Cleveland affiliate that focuses on pre-loan technical assistance and providing growth capital to minority-owned small businesses.
