LINCOLN, Neb. A very unique job fair today in Lincoln.

It was for case workers. Who help people in need. 15 employers and over 50 case workers met up at the center for people in need. This job fair was hosted by prosper Lincoln.

"What we discovered is employers are saying they can't find people for their jobs. Human service agencies are saying we need help funding jobs for our people. So we're making that connection today." Said Bryan Seck, Developer at Prosper Lincoln

"The information that I got by going out and doing these workshops the more I can take back to my co-worker and pass on to our clients. So it's imperative we do things like this. I think it's absolutely wonderful." Said Donna Roberts, Salvation Army

One goal is to help low income, disabled or refugees who are stuck in part-time jobs. Another organization called Project Homeless Connect and the Lincoln Homeless Coalition will be holding a special event on October 20th at Pinnacle Bank Arena from 10 to 3. They'll help people connect with services they may need.
