It is unique in that the program serves both jobseekers ready to meet the challenges of a job search and employers looking for talent.

Through this collaboration, and the funding of the United Way, each agency’s individual strengths are leveraged and maximized to ensure a convenient, consistent, high-quality approach to employment and services to help struggling individuals.
