Job Skills & Training

In an effort to move people beyond a crisis and onto a more self-sustaining life, Community Action of Skagit County is working to align our internal programming to move families forward. How do we do that? By providing families with tools that will help them articulate and manifest their goals in the areas of employment education and financial stabilty.
