Cora was a standout when enrolled in our Harvesting Hope training and employment search program.
Cora refreshed her skills and focused her job search, all the while providing excellent service within the Crisis Ministry’s food pantry program as an on-the-job trainee.
Cora completed the Harvesting Hope program with proven skills, new experience, a more effective resume, and polished interview skills. She was hired by Comfort Care as a caregiver and companion for elderly clients. At the same time, Cora became certified as a New Jersey Certified Nursing Assistant and as a phlebotomist.
Currently, the Crisis Ministry staff is thrilled to count Cora as a colleague, as an AmeriCorps worker and Hunger Prevention assistant!
