The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is  a community service and work-based job training program for older Americans  operated under  a U.S. Department of Labor grant. We thank the  Center for Workforce Inclusion, Inc. for selecting our organization to operate SCSEP in our community.

The Catholic Charities Senior Community Service Employment Program is funded by a 46.3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor. This funding provides 90% of the support for SCSEP with the Center and its subgrantees providing approximately $5 million in nonfederal match. The SCSEP Program is an equal opportunity program. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.
