CAO’s Life Works support program offers the potential for success

Community Action Opportunities (CAO), serving clients in Buncombe, Madison, McDowell, Polk, Henderson, and Transylvania counties, has successfully launched Life Works, a unique support system service designed to help residents obtain full-time, living-wage employment.

Life Works career coaches provide one-on-one training to arm participants with the tools to better manage their financial responsibilities. Participants can take up to three years to complete the training that includes mock interviews, problem-solving techniques, budgeting, parental support, and study tips, among other activities.
