Who We Serve

Our purpose is to help those who want to acquire or deepen their skills needed to find their next job, advance their career or start and grow their business. Employers are at the heart of how we advance our purpose.

Through mutually rewarding partnerships with a network of area employers, we match and create job opportunities that align with the abilities and skills of those we serve. Together, we transform lives through career coaching, job training and crucial employment support.

We welcome and assist people from all walks of life. This includes people with disabilities, and those who are just starting out or who are at-risk and struggling to find their way, career changers, mature workers, employers looking for qualified candidates, and entrepreneurs.
