Steps to Independence
A mandatory component of the Harford Family House program, the Steps to Independence program offers a range of life skills workshops in areas like: Money Management; Stress Management; Job Readiness; Conflict Resolution; and Healthy Eating on a Budget. Families are required to participate and child care is provided by a team of dedicated volunteers during these sessions.
A small computer lab exists to help families with job search and applications, housing search and placement, researching resources and continuing education. Web access is available and each computer is loaded with resume writing software, Microsoft Office Professional 2007, typing tutorials and a full complement of computer literacy tutorial software.
