"When I lost my factory job, I needed further skills to get another job. Without their help, I still wouldn't have more skills and would still be searching for a job. With their assistance, now I have skills and am employable."

Roderick Daily, who completed welding training

"I saw this program as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to better myself. To me, my family and my future, this is a daylight and dark difference. It will give me financial stability. I've been out of school for a long time, so this has been an adventure as well as a challenge, but I'm thrilled to no end that I did it."

Phyllis Snider-Cummings, who has completed training to become a registered nurse
