Being successful in a job or working toward a degree result in feelings of accomplishment, independence and self-worth. But for a person with mental health or substance abuse problems, creating a resume, preparing for an interview, filling out an application or knowing where to turn for financial aid can be overwhelming tasks. The Providence Center’s employment and education services provide people with the educational and vocational support they need to obtain employment and adjust to the demands of the working world.
Clients participate in workshops and activities that include:
- Job skills classes.
- Resume writing and interview workshops.
- Guidance in enrolling in GED classes and other education programs offered outside of The Providence Center.
- Groups that support the goals and interests of clients, such as reading, job search or healthy nutrition and exercise habits.
