LAKE COUNTY – Habitat for Humanity of Lake County and the Arbor Education & Training group have teamed up to provide the Arbor clients an opportunity to obtain employment skills in all phases of construction.


The majority of Arbor Education & Training clients are receiving some public assistance from the county of Lake.


In this partnership, people are not only fulfilling their time required by the state and federal guidelines for receiving cash aid, gaining the necessary training to learn some valuable job skills, but through their work, they are making a difference in their community.


This is a great pairing of services to provide Habitat clients with quality housing.


“This is a wonderful opportunity for people on public assistance to have a meaningful and dignified job while at the same time helping their community,” said President of Habitat for Humanity of Lake County Richard Birk.


In this time of high unemployment it appears that the number of people requesting public assistance will be increasing, so the partnership between Habitat for Humanity and Arbor is a very important step in providing a way for people in our community to contribute to the county of Lake.


“The Arbor staff is working to assist all our clients maintain or acquire employment. This partnership adds a new level of awareness for the Lake County Community, by combining work experience and community support; this can help us all through these tough economic times,” said Sharon Anderson, Arbor project director.


Employers wishing to find out more information about supporting a work experience person at their site are encouraged to call Teresa Wold at 995-9012, Extension 410.


For those interested in volunteering for Habitat for Humanity, please call their office at 994-1100. Habitat is a volunteer grassroots based organization and is always in need of people who want to help their community.
