  • KLH Engineers believes in an integrated approach that seeks to break down industry silos and create a more collaborative and efficient way to work for all our partners. During this pandemic, CAA quickly realized the need to improve its ability to hold virtual meetings and break down barriers when meeting clients remotely. KLH Engineers opted to help CAA with this project through their Keep Lending a Hand program, allowing CAA to increase its technological capabilities and continue to be a community leader.

  • Lisa Williamson has served CAA Head Start’s program with dedication and innovation. In her role, Lisa coordinated critical speech screenings for Head Start Children. These screenings helped identify children with potential delays and disabilities.

  • Rapid Re-Employment partners came together in 2020 to launch a wrap-around job readiness and career training program.
