How We Can Help
Our Employment Services team offers assistance by providing job market counseling and helping clients define their career goals.
The job placement program collaborates and leverages relationships with employers and the broader business community to help provide unemployed or underemployed individuals access to rewarding jobs.
Job counselors work closely with clients to assist them in:
- Filling out job applications and resume building
- Preparing for interviews and understanding employer expectations
- Pre-employment orientation
- Job placement and follow-up support
Past client placements include:
- Luke Community United Methodist Church
- Desoto Nursing and Rehab Center
- Dallas Cowboys
Our Career Enhancement services are aimed at not only providing our clients with opportunities to attain post-secondary education but also allowing our clients to improve their financial situation.
Our program assesses clients for training programs that fit their schedule, income needs and personal goals, and helps guide them through the application process. We provide access to countless training programs, many of which are linked in partnership with the Dallas County Community College District. Most programs are free or low cost.
Training programs include:
- Information Technology
- Medical Assistant
***For clients enrolled in job skills programs, on a case by case basis, we may provide direct assistance for a portion of the cost of training, instructional materials, and transportation.
