From its factory on East 55th Street, Vocational Guidance Services provides job training to help the disadvantaged break through physical, mental or economic bariers.
"The training they receive here helps our clients to a brighter future," says VGS Director Bob Combin.
Vocational Guidance Services teaches manufacturing and seamstress skills at its facility that makes uniforms for the U. S. Military.
The 65 people at work in the facility on a recent day are making uniforms for military personnel serving around the world. That's a source of pride for these workers.
VGS also provides custodian training and clients receive food service training in the agency's fully-equipped kitchen.
VGS clients earn a wage while they are in training, and that training prepares them for productive employment outside the agency, a dual benefit that makes Vocational Guidance Services part of "What Works" in northeast Ohio.
