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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Depending on funding, I would hire more life coaches and professionals as they have their hands full on a daily basis.

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.

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

Having the marta cards relieved a lot of my stress as to how I would get around to find work. The clothing referrals for work attire was really appreciated.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would develop more reliable contacts within companies so that I would be notified of job openings and I could refer and advocate clients to specific locations if they had the qualifications and disposition for the job.
