Two years later, we have a thriving service that seeks to provide culturally specific, multigenerational, holistic, accessible, and trauma-informed services to job seekers and entrepreneurs. Come learn how we developed these services, formed community partnerships and reacted and responded to an ever-changing world to create meaningful and impactful Job and Small Business Program/Department.
