well first off i had no idea there was even a place like this for people to come in and get the massive amount of help they offer: jobs, resume, what to do and not do in a in a interview, common questions that you will be asked in a interview i mean the list goes on and the staff there from Alex, Rhonda,Alicia, Larry ,Bob and the staff in the back all really care about helping those who want to be helped so i would just like to say thank you so much for taking to time to help get people back into the work force.

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
