Support Groups and Workshops
Networking support groups and workshops in English and Spanish meet at The Women’s Center to encourage those seeking employment to meet with others in similar circumstances, as well as learn a host of personal, job, and work readiness skills to successfully obtain and retain employment. Guest speakers are invited to discuss personal and professional development and provide networking opportunities.
Individual Case Management
Employment program clients often need personal skill development to assist them in overcoming barriers that deter them from accessing training and employment.
