Day 28: Employment & Training

Fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), Catholic Charities Employment & Training Services provides a comprehensive employment program that offers a variety of workforce development education and employment and training services to individuals, employers, businesses, government and community based organizations. The goal of Employment & Training Services is to inspire self-sufficiency by igniting the power of employment principals so that job seekers achieve economic independence and businesses achieve economic development.

The program is based on a system of continuum service that strengthens the capacity of individuals to:

  • Secure Employment
  • Re-Enter The Workforce
  • Remain Employed

Here is as story from Employment & Training Services as told by Anthony – a client…

As an African American male with an extensive criminal history, I was at my wit’s end. A friend of mine referred me to Catholic Charities Employment and Training to get assistance with my search for employment. With the help of my Case Manager, I created a resume and obtained interviewing skills that gave me the confidence I needed to re-enter the workforce.

I must admit that it was not an easy journey. I spent countless hours applying for positions but I stayed determined and was constantly encouraged by the Employment and Training staff.

As a result I am currently working as a warehouseman with a growing company that has opportunities for advancement, competitive wages and benefits. I appreciate the time and encouragement the staff gave me and I would never hesitate to refer friends and family for assistance in their job search.
