Reaching Out...Changing Lives

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony – Skills for Success – May 2, 2017

Today the Mission held a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony in celebration of the near completion of the vacant home purchased from the City of Utica at 1331 Sunset Ave in Utica. A new program Skills for Success Job Training program was implemented in 2015. Three classes have attended classes at Mohawk Valley Community College and had hands on experience completely renovating the home. The home will soon be put on the market and made available to a first-time home buyer.

A special thank you to our partners: Mohawk Valley Community College, OnPoint College, Working Solutions, Compassion Coalition and the City of Utica for making this vision a reality.
