This organization helps people help themselves. Our programs for literacy, GED, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), and our Nurse Aid Training help boost clients' self esteem and improve their skill sets. They are able to find employment (or better jobs), get off welfare and contribute to tax roles, instead of using tax money. They become better citizens in many aspects.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

people with little skills become proficient enough to pass the Nurse Assistant Licensing Program and get jobs.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing people grow and succeed, sometimes for the first time in their lives.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

hard workers, dedicated, with positive attitudes

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help so many more people get on the road to success.

I have been involved with the Employment Skills Center for the past 2 years and am proud of all the life changing work that they do! The sincerity, caring, and passion of the center staff is incredible! They are working hard every day to fill an important need in our community. It has been exciting to see the nurse aide pre-training program grow and expand to Home Health Aide and Emergency Medical Technician pre-training. Keep up the great work!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the letters,speeches, and testimonials from past students

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the enthusiasm and pride of the students.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

exceptional
