People Say .
Our Clients Say
The Employment program helped me to begin building a professional network. I learned how to market myself, and I also learned that I have many transferable skills. Learning how to conduct myself during an interview, as well, has been helpful. The staff were professional, organized, and very easy to work with!

Success Stories
A child had been expressing low self esteem by saying things like “nobody likes me” , “I am bullied”, “kids make fun of me”, “kids think I’m dumb”, “no one wants to play with me”. She was nervous and often worried. After empowering her, putting her in a leadership position, building her self esteem, and allowing her to express herself, she is much calmer, often laughing and playing with others. She now enjoys coming to the Kids’ Club and seeing her friends.

Community Says
We have been a corporate partner with Connections for over 3 years. The work they do has been amazing, and we are always kept informed on the work they do and how our support makes a difference. Last year we were able to attend a stay in school awards ceremony and meet with over 30 kids that were helped by our funding and have stayed in school and have big plans for their future!
