Testimonials

I was able to find a job within 2 months of working in the program, it was an amazing experience and as a mother, I would recommend this program to any parent seeking employment."

- V. Miranda, participant

I heard that there are programs that help people get back on their feet but I didn't know that people at CWP will be this engaged in my progress… I feel very confident in taking the next step toward a much better future.”

-V Group Recruiting

I was particularly grateful for the time spent with me discussing my options... 

 

I was also thrilled with the care taken by CWP to find me a position, which closely matched my skills."

- A. Fufa, participant

I have been in the PDX area for about 4 months and so far CWP Jobs Plus has been the most helpful program!  My first meeting with my CWP caseworker was amazing! She felt that I was a good candidate for a paid internship through the JOBS Plus program and encouraged me to apply…If it wasn't for CWP Jobs Plus I would have never thought to apply for such a position. Because of the support I received from them I’m now learning new skills and seeing more opportunities for a fulfilling career.”
