Dandelion, a local eatery

Is the cornerstone of our job training program. Our internship program provides job training for survivors of violence and provides an educational and supportive environment for those who may be at risk.

Participants gain experience and strengthen interpersonal skills while receiving additional services for themselves and their families.

These internships help create financial stability for trauma survivors while building workforce development within our community.
