Luis Cortes, Jr. joined Philadelphia Works as well as elected officials, representatives from the PA Department of Labor & Industry and Department of Human Services to celebrate the opening of the new integrated PA CareerLink® Center located at 4261 North 5th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19140. This new center in North Philadelphia is third of four integrated PA CareerLink® centers now operating in convenient locations across the city under the “No Wrong Door” model of workforce service delivery.
“Esperanza is proud to be a part of this exciting moment commemorating the opening of the integrated PA CareerLink Center here in North Philadelphia,” said Esperanza’s Founder, President and CEO Rev. Luis Cortés. “Providing opportunities and opening doors for thousands of Philadelphians is the cornerstone of our work here. We know that good jobs transform the lives of individuals, builds families and benefits the larger community. We are especially grateful for the relationships we enjoy with Philadelphia Works and employers and are anxious to see the positive impact this integrated model will deliver for our community.”
