Mrs. H was suddenly thrust into the role of provider for her family, after her husband had a heart attack. Entering the workforce can be a daunting task for anyone. It is especially difficult for a more mature woman, with limited skills and career background.
After she completed the Junior Accounting program, Cope placed Mrs. H in a well-paying job as bookkeeper/ computer programmer.
Mrs. H wrote to her thanks to Cope’s placement coordinator:
“I cannot possibly pay back a fraction of the care and attention I received from you and always seem to come back for more with an outstretched arm.”
