“The Parents to Work program has been a true godsend in my life! The staff of this program have gone above and beyond to see to it that I become successful and maintain stability for my children and myself. The program has been working with me since the onset of the pandemic and I can honestly say that the resources the program has to offer helped sustain me during the most difficult times I’ve experienced. I’m still a client and I am so grateful to the staff of PTW and for the program!”
“Parents to Work program helped me achieve a goal I have been putting off for a long time. Thanks to the help from my workforce specialist I was able to pass my GED and am a proud 2020 graduate. The program and people in it are a great support. They encourage me and challenge me to do more, at the same time giving me what I need to be successful. I was able to enroll in Virtual Work Readiness program and completed it successfully. I am still working on reaching my other goals but now I believe I can reach them. ”
