EMPLOYMENT RESOURCE NETWORK (ERN)
The Employment Resource Network (ERN) is a partnership which will aid in increasing employment and income opportunities as well as housing access for the homeless and chronically homeless in the Greater Battle Creek Calhoun County area.
Participants will be identified through the Greater Battle Creek/Calhoun County Continuum of Care Coordinated Entry System as they enter the system through either self-referral or agency referral. Navigation and agency collaboration are key to this process.
