Sometimes, individuals and families need assistance with identifying available services within their community. We assist with connecting you with available resources and opportunities

Employment referrals

In effort to connect the community to opportunities, we work with individuals seeking employment to find leads, prepare for interviews and secure positions within the workforce.

Case management

Serving as a mentor brings many challenges and rewards, with the best mentors working to shape their mentees into other leaders, rather than just good followers. If done well, the long-term impact of mentoring can offer life- and career-changing benefits to both parties.
