Employment and training programs we offer
CSCC works with low-income families to help them turn their lives around. Our programs build skills, change attitudes, and help find jobs for people in need. Our goal is to help low-income families become economically self-sufficient.

Our customized job search assistance, referrals to other community services and the ability to issue support services to clients all help in the effort to move people from food stamps to self-sufficiency.
