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 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!
