About

Partner with Eva's Workforce Development Program, whose goals are to empower, mentor and prepare clients with the knowledge, courage and tools necessary to successfully find a job. Work with Eva's clients so they can learn how to complete a job application, prepare a resume/reference page/thank you letter and do basic internet job searches. Train them on interviewing skills by working with volunteers and participating in bimonthly mock job fairs that focus on practicing interviewing.

Clients who attend the Workforce Development program are in their first weeks of Orientation (4 weeks in total) at the Halfway House Addiction Treatment Program at Eva’s Village. They are adult men and women who vary in age, education and work skills. They are referred to Eva’s by various county Drug Court Systems, detox or other treatment facilities, or simply come on their own to get help. Although many of the clients have been in prison, none are violent offenders, including sexual abuse and/or crimes against persons or children.
