Workforce Development

Our Workforce Development programs offer classes for education and economic improvement. Our programs are designed to empower individuals to advance their knowledge and skills for employment. We adapt our programs to the needs of our community. We help with financial training, technology training, culinary training, and general employment. All our participants have access to support services to address barriers to success. Through these integrated programs, participants have the necessary tools to help stabilize their lives, build confidence in their careers, and move towards economic self-sufficiency.
