New Leaf Kitchen & Café recently received a $10,000 grant from Wells Fargo. This will support program operations for the trauma-informed, free culinary job training program, designed to help low-income individuals with barriers to traditional employment gain the professional skills and confidence necessary for economic self-sufficiency.
Agency-wide job readiness support is also provided. Participants work with our Vocational Specialist to help them create a resume, practice interview skills, and become prepared for entering a professional work environment. In 2022, 22 adults enrolled in the 2 job training programs with 5 graduates obtaining employment after completion.
Thank you Wells Fargo!
