Dinolfo and Maximus Announce Hiring Results For Monroe County Human Services Clients

Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo was joined by Ferdinand Morales, MAXIMUS Vice President of Health Operations to announce the success of two job fairs targeted to clients of the Monroe County Department of Human Services. Monroe County and MAXIMUS organized sixty interviews to take place during the most recent job fair. Twenty-four individuals were hired at the event, bringing job totals from the partnership of MAXIMUS and the Monroe County Department of Human Services to forty-seven.

“As County Executive, one of my top priorities is to ensure that everyone in Monroe County has the opportunity to obtain good paying employment,” said Dinolfo. “I thank MAXIMUS for partnering with the County and the Department of Human Services. This partnership is a win for our community as we connect MAXIMUS with local residents seeking employment. This bold initiative will help facilitate the transition from public assistance to self-sufficiency.”

Ferdinand Morales, Vice President for MAXIMUS Health Operations, said, “The Monroe County Department of Human Services has been instrumental in helping us find great employees to staff our new customer contact center in Gates. We are equally excited to help individuals transition from public assistance into long-term sustained employment with MAXIMUS.”

MAXIMUS and Monroe County share many of the same fundamental values. MAXIMUS has thousands of employees around the world who are dedicated to helping individuals and families access and utilize a variety of government programs such as Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program. Monroe County is dedicated to helping children and families improve and build upon their own successes. These important values are at the heart of this joint venture between MAXIMUS and Monroe County.

Going forward and as a next step, Monroe County will be seeking additional employers to expand upon the job offerings available to Department of Human Services clients.

Dinolfo also announced that a Request for Proposals was issued for a new County initiative to provide training in financial literacy, decision making and the skills necessary to retain employment with the ultimate goal of financial independence.
