What is ESTA?

ESTA offers services for getting and maintaining employment through case management, workshops or both.

Workforce Ready Housing

The goal of this program is to assist young adults (ages 18-25) in obtaining the life skills necessary to secure and maintain stable housing. Program participants must be working or Ready-to-Work, meet age requirements and complete an application. Participants will be provided weekly case management to help overcome their barriers to housing.

Once a month a community meeting and lunch will be hosted by ESTA. This is required and will allow staff and students to address issues/needs and to build a community support system. Monthly workshops on a wide range of topics will be scheduled to help build necessary life skills.

Workforce Development

The goal of this program is to assist young adults (ages 16-21) in obtaining the life skills necessary to meet career goals and live independently.

At intake, participants will set their goals. Participants will be provided weekly case management to help meet these goals. Case managers will assess for best-fit career and assist in creating a career plan.

Assistance in learning how to navigate resume writing, job search, applications and mock interviews will prepare participants for their careers.
