Career and Recovery Resources helps Houstonians overcome barriers to employment

Helping people find a path to success by identifying and overcoming barriers to employment.

HOUSTON — A battle with addiction, a criminal record, or even being out of the work force to focus on life can all create a barrier to getting a job. Kelly Young, CEO of Career and Recovery Resources, stopped by Great Day to discuss how the nonprofit is helping to clear the way to employment. Career and Recovery Resources helps to empower job seekers with job readiness training, career guidance, job placement assistance, job retention counseling, and employment-related supportive services. Their enrichment classes include GED exam preparation, computer classes, and both adult basic education and computer classes in American Sign Language for persons who are deaf or hearing-impaired.

Career and Recovery Resources is hosting the Barrier Breaker Award Luncheon on Tuesday, June 25th at the Hyatt Regency, from 11:30 am to 1 pm.
