The Life Skills program provides one-on-one adult mentorship and group work for survivors to help empower them to deal with life events and experiences, with the goal of achieving self-sufficiency. Survivors are offered the opportunity to participate in Wellness & Nutrition classes, which includes expressive dance, exercise courses and more. We also offer 6-week individualized Mentor Coaching, as well as an Employment Program, which helps expand employment readiness through a 5-week career development series that prepares you with interviewing skills, how to dress the part, building your resume, maintaining employment, and professional mock interviews. A certificate is received at the end of the series that can be included on your resume. Mentors assist with identifying job leads and referrals to job placement services.
The Life Skills program is designed to help individuals assess their immediate needs while working with an advocate to become self-empowered and regain a sense of control in their lives.
