Legislative reports from past fiscal years summarize CND activities and progress.
Theis one specific project that Centers are in collaboration on. In our effort to helpf single parents and displaced homemakers be self-sufficient, we recognize that some employment fields result in higher earnings. Training an individual for employment in a field where less than 25% of their gender is employed (the deifinition of a 'nontraditional field') most often allows the worker to make a living wage and realize self-sufficiency.
