PRRC Participants LOVE Their Jobs
"PRRC gave my confidence a boost a couple years ago when I completed the retail training program at a thrift store. I improved my customer service skills and cashiering skills during that training. That experience has enabled me to re-focus on finding a permanent job. My Employment Specialist assisted me with the application and interview. When I was first hired, the job coaching support helped me overcome obstacles and improve my communication with managers and co-workers. I have now been employed for over six months and I am proud to say that I can work independently." ~Amy
"I love my job." ~Gareth
"I love my job forever, and I love the fact that you (Employment Specialist) come here to help me...to make sure that I'm doing things right. I love the Pomeroy Center because they have great people like you (Employment Specialist), to come help me." ~Mark
