Very helpful teaching me how to job search online and properly filling out the job apps. I really enjoyed the program. Staff was professional and made me feel as if I'm valued and made me feel worthy. They listened and were not judgmental. They were understanding and made me realize the things I was capable of doing.
It's helped me in my recovery. I'm real proud of myself. I've come a long way.
They open their arms and made me feel very welcome. Not once did I feel uncomfortable here.
