THE STORY:

The Susquehanna Workforce Network (SWN) has been helping people in Cecil and Harford Counties find jobs and change career for thirty-two years. In today's economy, hundreds of seasoned workers have had to change careers which meant they needed to learn new skills by enrolling in training. Increasing numbers of our citizens need assistance to complete their training that is often beyond SWN's available resources. Let me introduce you to one of these valuable workers....Donna was let go from her job when her company suddenly closed. She had not updated her resume in years because she was consistently employed. The staff at Susquehanna Workforce Centers assisted her in identifying her career strengths, updating her resume and assisted her in developing new skill sets by paying for her training costs. Transportation and childcare assistance was also provided during her training. Because of the support services she received, she was able to complete her training quickly, find employment in her new career, and become self-sufficient once again. As in Donna's case, many valuable workers need to acquire new skills to find employment. While in training, they still need to feed their families, pay for housing and meet other living expenses. SWN has the resources to assist with training costs but does not have the increased resources needed to cover childcare, transportation and other needs while a person is in training. This is where your help can make a difference. The following support will assist our motivated trainees with assistance while they are completing their training and become re-employed: $140.00=Transportation for 8 weeks $660.00=Childcare for 8 weeks $250.00=Books/Supplies $400.00=Healthcare Student's Immunizations $135.00=Employment Supplies: steel toed boots, tools, equipment, scrubs
