Crystal, our Career Passport instructor, writes about T.W., a recent graduate who was hired as a chef after completing a training program.
It's a funny thing about names. Names can mean different things to different people.
Some of our clients stay with us for extended periods as they work through their barriers to stability. Others just need a brief hand up as they regain traction in their lives. Ray is in the second group.
The agency has been renamed Housing Forward.
Rebranding a non-profit agency sometimes seems like the vanity project of a board chair or executive director. But there are times when it is a necessary effort to reflect the dynamic growth in mission that an agency has tackled and accomplished. Surely that is the case as West Suburban PADS becomes Housing Forward.
A local agency known for assisting the homeless has changed its name to better reflect the entirety of what it offers. West Suburban PADS, founded in 1992 as Tri-Village PADS, is now known as Housing Forward.
Having grown beyond its overnight shelter, Housing Forward reflects full scope of housing services.
