ACSS has enlightened me greatly with tools to be successful and self sufficient. The classes are AMAZING and the knowledge is priceless. As a graduate of the program *COHORT 40*, I am very pleased to have been a part of this program and would recommend to anyone in need of personal affirmation and self sufficiency.

I utilized their service. I went through the program because I was told that they would help me find a job. However, I was disappointed in that I was given no job leads and even when I shared information with them regarding the places where I was job hunting (and they had contacts there), they would not contact the company on my behalf. I primarily performed my own job search and located my own job. The marta cards that they provided were very helpful and allowed me to travel around and search for work.
