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