Taichung church explores housekeeping job opportunities for unemployed members
>Reported by Chen Wei-jian
>Written by Lydia Ma
In the wake of the recent financial crisis, churches need to look out for the
emotional and spiritual needs of their members as well as think of tangible ways
of supporting them – such as helping them to find jobs.
To help its members, Taichung Presbytery’s Chung-Hsiao Road Church invited
Jireh Housework Ltd. executive Wu Ching-Ping to give a presentation on June
30th on the topic of employment in the housekeeping sector. Wu is also a zone
leader from Fengshan Bread of Life Church in Kaohsiung County and Chung-
Hsiao Church leaders hoped that this opportunity might help unemployed
members and parents involved in after-school tutoring find suitable employment.
Wu has worked in social services and housekeeping companies after graduating
from college. Knowing how difficult it is for women to juggle a career and a family
and fueled by a love for housekeeping, she founded Jireh Housework Ltd. based
in Kaohsiung to extend this type of social services to those in need.
The main goal of the presentation was to pass on information to those who need
it and invite interested parties to attend basic training sessions that will be
organized in the near future. After some training and assessment, Chung-Hsiao
Church will help introduce some jobs to participants.
