Over the past several years this country has been experiencing major financial turmoil. During this time there have been increases in educational illiteracy, unemployment and poverty. As workers in the community, sadly we have witnessed these events unfold and the sight of it is a disturbance.
With the unemployment rates on a steady incline, many families who once enjoyed a comfortable life are finding themselves out of work, out of savings and without a marketable degree leaving them feeling like they are out of options. The organizations of People Helping People (PHP) and Fresh Steps Development Centers (FSDC) have joined together to institute programs that will break the cycles and stop the madness.
