As Father John said, "There aren't many firsts in life. But you get to be the first for our JOBS program. You are very important to us. I need each of you to go out and be successful, to start your new careers, and open the door for even more people. I am so proud."
Seven of the nine members of the JOBS program are beginning a new job and the other two are awaiting a final offer.
While we'll have a more detailed post soon, why wait to share some of the great photos:

where most of the first class of the JOBS program are currently staying.
|Father John addressed the group, commending them on their focus and dedication |
to learning a new career.
|Seven of the nine graduates are already beginning a new job, and the final two are |
waiting on final offers. That's a great start!
