I was released from federal prison in August 8 and came here to this center two weeks later. I was warmly received and given help to find jobs in my field. I have not found any yet, but received encouragement by Crystal and Lorraine to not give up. I am so very much appreciative of this place and all it has to offer. God Bless You

I came to Center for Living and Learning as a broken and lost soul. They are patiently connecting me to a variety of jobs. The first few persons I met was Larry, Lorraine, Mary and Ron. Then I met the management team, Rhonda and Alex. Months passed by, I got a job and I along other friends of mine continue to come regularly to use its resources esp the computers. The staff continue helping us. Try it for yourself and refer others. Great people. Thanks personally from me, Martin C.

If you are looking for help in getting it together the Center for Living and Learning is a great place to start. While professional, the atmosphere there is warm and friendly making for a more comfortable learning experience. At the Center for Living and Learning you are given the tools you will need to get you started in building for yourself a better path to success. I, myself, am grateful for the time I have spent at the center. I learned a lot about process of searching and interviewing for perspective jobs. Along that process I became more confident about my abilities and what I have to offer to an employer. The center for Living and Learning build their clients up so that they can enter into a challenging, and often unfriendly, work environment prepared to take on the challenges of finding a job in this economy. Thank you to all of the staff at the Center for Living and Learning.
