Great staff, caring staff. All seem to be focused on helping the client move from point A to point B, regardless of obstacles in the way. Clients develop an "I Can" attitude.

Before I signed up to participate in this program, I had been laid off by another company and was facing life on my own, after losing my husband of 42 years all of a sudden. I had seen the MND letters on the outside of the building, while seeking assistance in another room. This program, helped to inspire me more to continue to go forward, because I was really hurting. MND"s staff helped to assist me to continue to strive harder to increase my surroundings as God has provided. This MND staff is terrific!

Maryland New Directions is hands down the best employment training program that I have ever attended. The staff are all very helpful. They not only help you recognize the skills that you already possess entering the program they teach you skills that you can use both professionally and personally for life. I encourage anyone who needs this help to come to this place ,be truthful and apply yourself and stay connected and you will have success.
