Children, Family & Community Connections (CFCC), has a long-standing reputation in delivering quality employment and training programs. We offer customized employment services for low-income Clackamas County residents. Our services increase skills, confidence, wage potential and create long-term employment opportunities.  Long-term career path employment opportunities benefit both the program participant and local area businesses.

Employment and training programs we offer


We work with veterans to help them get jobs. Our Veteran employment program provides intensive, one-on-one workforce services to Clackamas County veterans from all military eras. Our services include co-case management with other veteran specific service providers including housing, social services, vocational rehabilitation. We coordinate wrap-around services with veteran specific organizations such as Tools for Troops, Fort Kennedy, local VFWs and more. Services are available for those veterans living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

For more information, contact Ken Bietschek at KenBie@clackamas.us or Aubrie Balkwill at ABalkwill@clackamas.us.


CFCC’s Employment Investment Program (EIP) provides intensive one-on-one services to Clackamas County residents who benefit from assistance navigating training and employment opportunities.  The program is designed for individuals who want to work may not qualify for other programs and/or need longer term assistance and support.  Referral partners include Housing Authority of Clackamas County, Clackamas Women’s Services, Clackamas County Urgent Mental Health Center, Social Services, Community Court, Vocational Rehabilitation and more.  Person-centered services include co-case management and access to wrap-around services.  Services can be provided virtually or in person as desired by the participant.


Located at 108 11th St. in downtown Oregon City, CFCC operates as a job search and training center.  Our facility follows COVID-19 safety rules including physical distancing, face masks (must cover nose and mouth), sanitation and contact tracing.  The Center is located conveniently next door to the Tri-Met Bus Mall with easy access to I-205 and Hwy 99.  Services are also available virtually.


CFCC’s STEP program (SNAP Employment and Training Program) prioritizes services to formerly incarcerated persons, persons with substance use disorders and persons in long-term recovery.  Services include individual career counseling, resume preparation, customized job development and "soft skill" training. The program is located at the CFCC Employment Training Center located next to the Tri-Met Bus Mall and across the street from the Community Corrections.

CFCC works with low-income families receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Our programs help build skills, develop education and training plans and result in career path employment.

We work individually with each program participant to create a customized employment and training plan specific to the participant’s own goals. The Workforce team also provides connections to wrap-around services, subsidized employment training opportunities and helps with work required tools, clothing, certificates and transportation.
