Community Action Spotlight
In July 2014, the White House released a report highlighting successful job-driven training strategies that are working across the country in an effort to support individuals securing and maintaining in-demand career opportunities all over America.
Featured in the report was one of Albany Community Action Partnership’s very own Career Services Program Graduate and Success Story, LaDasia Jeffers!
LaDasia enrolled in Albany Community Action Partnership (ACAP) Career Services Program in 2011, successfully completed the HPOG Certified Nursing Assistant Training and was working full time all within a few short months.
However, none of her success came without challenge. During her time with ACAP, LaDasia, a single mother at the time, had both of her children diagnosed with Autism and was forced to juggle their need for intensive therapy with her need to support them.
While other life challenges might seem like they would stop her in her tracks, LaDasia remained persistent and with ACAP's support, today she remains working in the field and will even approach her two year employment anniversary soon.
LaDasia is one of more than 1000 customers served and one of over 600 job placements achieved in the Capital Region by ACAP's Career Services Program since 2009. Though not alone, LaDasia shines as a true definition of an ACAP Success Story.
Congratulations to LaDasia and to all ACAP Community Partner's for their successful work force development efforts and this wonderful national recognition.
Albany Community Action Partnership is honored to have served such a wonderful woman and our Career Services Program's success would not be possible without the dedication and hard work of those who keep us motivated, our customers.
