Get A Job Kit trainees celebrate their graduation
“Like so many One Stop Centers, we serve a region that’s been hit hard by layoffs and downsizing. The Get A Job Kit supplements existing county employment services and helps us respond more rapidly. We keep a supply on hand because you never know when the next shoe will drop.”
— Reno, Nevada
After the completion of their successful four-week paid training program, six women who have experienced homelessness celebrated their graduation today with the happy Women’s Empowerment staff and community volunteers who supported them during their journeys. These graduates join the 18 women before them who also completed the training–70 percent of whom are now employed–in walking new paths toward healthy and sustainable futures for themselves and their families.
Congratulations to them!
