Eleven clients completed their 6-week class with Wesley and have earned scholarships to local community colleges for Certified Nursing Assistant, Phlebotomy and EKG.

In the words of one of our graduates, “With the help of Wesley, I am able to be less stressed about money for classes and books and focus on my training.”
