Opportunity to Earn


Every adult in America should have equal access to resources that enhance employability and job mobility, including post-secondary education and training.

Work is empowering. Work gives purpose and dignity to life, provides families with economic and social stability and contributes to our community. Our job readiness and employment programs facilitate the process, so individuals can identify, prepare for, attain and maintain employment and self-sufficiency. Our programs are geared toward the unemployed and underemployed. We also work with employers to identify employment opportunities, as well as identify and pre-screen employees.
