Locals find jobs through Fremont Career Placement Pilot program
7 Dec 2018
When local resident James Smith was struggling to make his rent payment, he contacted the Fremont Area United Way to see if the local non-profit could help.
“I knew they offered rent assistance and I was just figuring I would jump through the hoops and that would be it,” he said.
Although Smith did receive rent assistance — he ended up with something worth a whole lot more — a new full-time job.
Smith was one of 10 local residents who participated in Fremont Career Placement pilot program developed by a variety of local organizations and businesses to help people better their lives through providing job training and access to local gainful employment opportunities.
