Success Stories and Comments

Dear Sandy,
I wanted to write this letter as a thank you to you and the other staff in the ICS Resource Center for employment. Back in February 2012 you helped me write a resume and spent a great deal of time with me to develop a successful one. Since then, I have come in to complete online job applications and take job seeking skills advice. I was recently hired for a part-time position at a nearby Home Dept. I believe it is because the staff members in the Resource Center help with my online application and I was able to walk in with an up to date resume as a follow up. I am very happy to have a part-time position to help support my family. Thank you for your dedication and had work.

“I can honestly say that my experience with the ICS Resource Room has been a positive one. The more I keep going, the better I feel about coming back. The volunteers are always willing to help and answer any questions that I may have. They provide great feedback. I don’t feel any pressure or any negativity when I go. I feel like they are my family. I am blessed that this facility is here and willing to help me. I will tell everyone about it.
