Free Phone MN Gives HIRED Clients a Chance to Connect

Imagine looking for a job or trying to find an affordable place to live, but not having access to a phone because of your limited income.  How would you manage?

Yesterday, Free Phone MN distributed free cell phones to 40 St. Paul-area job seekers in HIRED’s programs.  Through Free Phone MN, participants receive one phone per household, along with 250 minutes of calling per month.  To ensure the phone service remains free-of-charge, the phones discontinue working when they reach 251 minutes.  Customer service is also provided at no cost to the participants.

Thank you to HIRED’s program managers and employment counselors for connecting their clients to this important resource, and to Free Phone MN for their innovative program.
