SOME, Inc. dba, So Others Might Eat
February 3, 2010

I have had the pleasure of working with the CET center for several years now. My company has employed approximately 7 individuals, and 6 are still here! I believe this successful program is due to the particular model they use. They address ALL barriers to success, not just job training. Substance abuse issues, housing, day care, medical care - all impact a person's ability to be successful in a job. I have worked with other organizations, and have not had the success I have experienced working with SOME CET.
