Crawford Works is an affiliate of Crawford: 20/20 Vision and The Crawford Partnership.

According to the Crawford Works website, the program is modeled after a proven and successful Cincinnati Works program that is transferable to communities “desiring to improve the placement and retention of their chronically unemployed citizens in a cost-effective manner”. The Cincinnati Works business model is scalable to local communities and has been recognized nationally for its “persuasive results” that measures job placements, retention, and tracks the number of members who reach self-sufficiency. In fact, the retention rate for members who stay employed continuous for one-year is an impressive 70 percent.
