Workforce & Education Development
One of the first programs started by Joni Smith in August of 2015 was Workforce & Education Development. This service aids the unemployed and underemployed with job placements, GED and English language education, job skill training, and career/life coaching. As we prepare for Joni’s retirement, the board would like to honor her service by launching a fundraising campaign for this transformational program. Specifically, the program's growth shows the need for an Education Coordinator to manage all the various classes and education opportunities. Workforce and Education Development helps 250+ clients find jobs every year, for a total of $3,000,000 in salaries. This is THE service that can directly change lives.
