On a Mission to Eliminate Poverty

We are a non-profit agency that provides FREE, lifetime career coaching and support services, from crafting a resume and applying for a job to networking and budgeting. Our goal is to help our neighbors find dignified, stable work that offers sufficient pay and benefits, so they can provide for themselves and their families.

We are not a staffing agency. We are a partner. Wherever our Members are on the career path – from searching for an entry-level job to seeking a promotion to management – we can help.
