With the recent COVID-19 pandemic and its affects on the economy, the services of CWJC are more needed than ever. The hiring pool has quickly increased while the number of jobs available has decreased in turn creating a very competitive job market. For those who have limited job skills or experience, securing employment becomes almost unattainable. Women who complete the employment readiness job training program with CWJC become viable candidates for employment as they develop computer skills, receive mentoring and prepare for interviews. Funds will be used to serve a greater number of women in order to meet growing needs for employment.
