A few years ago when I was unemployed, I had the opportunity to attend Renewed Hope Center's Employment classes. The teachers were very knowledgeable and helpful. We worked on writing resumes' and learned techniques to feel confident in an interview. Trudy was always very prepared for class and had lots of resources to help us explore the employment possibilities in our community. The Center was always a welcome place to go to work on my resume or attend a class. It was a wonderful experience and I felt very blessed to be a part of such a well developed, organized program. I have been employed now for 18 months in a job that has great benefits, pays well and has lots of room for advancement. I've received two merit increases since I began working. Attending the classes at Renewed Hope Center gave me the confidence I needed to land a rewarding job and feel good about myself once again.
