There are going to be monies available from our workforce development and educational partners for trainings and certifications. We encourage people who are looking for a new job to contact us to make an appointment with a Career Coach to explore employment and career opportunities. This may be a chance to access training and start on a new path.
We also recognize it is not just about a job. The stress, whether financial or otherwise, can lead to anxiety and depression. If you or someone you know is in need of someone to talk to, please make an appointment with one of our mental health professionals.
I was also reminded recently that it is not just women who are suffering with the challenges of the pandemic. While our programs are focused on women, we serve everyone at WRC. In fact, 3% of our clients are male and over 28% of those reaching out to us on our Local Resource web page are male.
I want to close by saying thank you. Thank you to the staff and volunteers at WRC who work every day to ensure that the needs of our clients are being met. Thank you to our donors who ensure we have the funds and resources to support our programs. And THANK YOU for being part of the WRC community.
The virus has no compassion. But businesses, nonprofit organizations, foundations, educational institutions and the people across our community do.
