As of next Monday (September 20) we'll be closer to our pre-COVID usual to offer Employment Services supports. This means that we'll have staff on site where people can come to use our computers for job searching and employment purposes, or sitting down with staff to explore their needs in more details. Our preference would be that someone schedule an appointment, but we will do our best to accommodate walk in traffic through a buzzer system that has been installed on our front doors.
