Community Outreach News
For many years, I have struggled to hold a job. It wasn't easy to make ends meet. Then I met the Employment Specialist at Community Outreach Canada. That's when I met an amazing Employment Specialist. She was compassionate and took me through various steps to meet my personal needs and then sent me numerous jobs to apply for. I must say it takes a lot of time and patience to weed through jobs online but with the help of the Employment Specialist, I was placed at a job that gave me the experience and now after a year I have gotten into a full time position in a Montessori school.
I was very sick and was on ODSP for a long time. I am much better but unable to sit and stand for too long. I was encouraged when the Employment Specialist told me that he could give me a short which had some flexibility. So he paid for my security license and gave me a job as concierge. I am very happy. Hours are good and I can support my family. Now I got my son to do the same because the money is good. No brainer job. Thank you Andrew.
For my long term goal, you have encouraged me to continue my education and along with the job, I am taking a course in payroll at night school so that my skills can be relevant and I am ready for any opportunity of advancement that comes along. Because of the Agency’s support, I can see a better future in maybe payroll for myself. Thanks to you and all the staff at Community Outreach Program for the help. I could not have done it without your help.
No matter how hard I tried, I wasn't able to launch my business. The Business Consultant at Community Outreach Canada helped get my business plan ready and I am no on my way to launching my web design business taking it to new levels of marketing. Meeting and Networking is so important. The business plan has given me steps on how to market and make money as I go along.
