The Welfare Reform Liaison Project (WRLP) is a community action agency that aims to help low-income families in Guilford County achieve self-sufficiency. To do so, it provides workforce training and job placement in a variety of green-focused industries. One training site is Mattress Go Round, a company that recycles old mattresses, and thus, diverts nearly 3,000 mattresses a year from local landfills. Most recently, WRLP initiated training programs in digital imagery/paper reduction and “green” hospitality. Between 2010 and 2011 alone, about 150 people found jobs after participating in one of WRLP’s training programs.
