Goodwill’s Imi Loa immigrant employment services program has received a new moniker. Now known as the Employment Core Services for Immigrants (ECSFI), the name reflects how the program fits within the scope of employment core services.
The goal of the program is to help non-US citizens living in Hawaii gain sustained employment. The ECSFI program provides training in a culturally sensitive, relaxed classroom environment. The program helps immigrants gain skills that will give them an employment advantage in today’s economy.
The program is made possible through the funding support from the Department of Labor and Industrial Relations-Office of Community Services, State of Hawaii and through appropriations made by the Legislature of the State of Hawaii. Those in the program utilize the services by participating in the planning process and actively searching for jobs.
The mission of Goodwill Industries of Hawaii is to help people with employment barriers become self-sufficient and reach their full potential.
