Workforce Development

Helping low-income, unemployed or underemployed adults find work

 

 

The Workforce Development program offers job-readiness training, interview and computer skills training, resume/cover letter assistance and job referrals for low-income, unemployed or underemployed adults.

 

We tailor our services to the needs of each client in our program. Whether it be through
one-on-one coaching or creating a personal career plan, our program is unique in the job training arena.

A Story of Hope

 

“They gave me confidence. Nobody had ever done that before.”

 

Denise had spent 15 years working for a local company and had been laid off when she came to our program. She had a good resume, but couldn’t seem to find new employment. Our caseworkers helped Denise freshen up her resume and provided her with interview-appropriate clothing and an interview coach. Within a week of completing our program, Denise secured a job and has since come back to volunteer to help others.

 

“I learned how to present myself in front of someone to sell myself in an interview—to say yes, I am the person you need to do this job and I want to be able to help someone else learn how to do that.”
