Finding a job is especially difficult if you don't have transportation, childcare, or the means to go back to school. A Cincinnati anti-poverty organization is offering a helping hand to those who want to help themselves.

Cincinnati Works pre-screens its members by doing a background check, drug screen, and requires job readiness workshops. It held its first spring job fair Tuesday at City Link in the West End.
