SNAP Employment & Training Program

The Evelyn K. Davis Center is now a provider for the SNAP Employment & Training (E&T) Program. If you are receiving SNAP Benefits you may be eligible to participate in the E&T program. This means that I am able to assist you with developing a resume, preparing for interviews and applying for jobs. Additionally, a benefit of the E&T program is that I would also be able to assist with some transportation costs, uniform, tools, etc. If you are interested in the “training” portion of the program, I can refer you to the Workforce Training Academy where you can learn about courses that you can take at no cost which will make you more marketable for your job search. Schedule an appointment with me or give me a call.
