It’s been a hard couple of years. Our nation has endured unimaginable suffering due to a global pandemic that has taken the lives of over 700,000 Americans and 908 residents of Tulare County. So many of our loved ones are gone or permanently impacted by a loss.
Together, we took extraordinary measures to stem the spread of the pandemic: sharply curbing economic activity, closing schools, and disrupting supply chains in unprecedented ways. The unemployment rate in Tulare County went from near-all-time lows to all-time highs in a single month.
Our mission statement is simple. We ensure that businesses have the skilled workers they need to prosper. We make certain that every member of our community can gain valuable skills to find a good job and raise a family in our community.
