Jacobs Ladder Job Center, Inc.
March 10, 2010
From the very moment of meeting with Jane Norman ( Volunteer Coordinator at the time) who is so amazing to me, I knew that I was in a place that sincerly wanted to help people, but more importantly they wanted to help them in a way that taught them to help themselves. I wanted to do anything and everything that I could to support their mission, but I also wanted to do more than just volunteer my own personal time I wanted to involve the company I work for. So, I got the owner of New Horizons Computer Learning Centers to come visit Jacob's Ladder and after meeting with Jane Norman we provided free computer training to Jacob's ladder clients and started a scholarship program in which 4 Jacob's Ladder clients are pursuing Microsoft Computer certifications. The only reason I mention the scholarhip and free training is to encourage and urge any volunteer who is employeed to look for opportunities to involve the companies that they work for as well. Jacob's Ladder is unique and meets needs that are not being met by anyone else. The staff are beautiful and dedicated people who day in and day out do a job that few others could do and even fewer still would want to do. I appreciate, admire, and envy them all. Certainly they are blessed beyond measure by God to be able to have a career that touches the lives of so many people in ways that I'm sure that even they aren't fully aware of. Thank you God for Jacob's Ladder and the staff and all the volunteers that make it a success!!
