Suits with Skills

Imagine leaving your home, your comfort zone, with only your children and the clothes on your back. For over 500 women and children in the Midland area last year, this was their harsh reality. JLM is passionate about helping survivors of domestic abuse break free from repression to lead self-sufficient and healthy lives. Partnering with Safe Place of the Permian Basin and Buckner Children and Family Services, JLM provides a 12-week session program called Suits with Skills. The sessions are designed to teach abuse survivors to build resumes, learn interview skills, exhibit a professional appearance and communicate effectively in the workplace. Upon completion, each participant receives interview                                                                                     appropriate attire.
