Locals find jobs through Fremont Career Placement Pilot program
Friday, December 07, 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.
