“Fast Forward 4 Families” is a new workforce development program in Carson City that provides full-ride family scholarships for tech training to help Nevadans move from minimum wage jobs to meaningful careers.
Community partners including Western Nevada College and Capital City C.I.R.C.L.E.S. Initiative offer formal education and skill development while FISH takes care of housing, food, on-the-job training and other support.
Certificate programs being offered include manufacturing, construction, automotive, welding, HVAC, information technology and healthcare.
Small Donations Count More Than You Think When You Help FISH
Donations of all sizes can go a long way towards helping non-profits serve lower income individuals and families in Northern Nevada. Whether you can afford $5 or $5,000, every dollar helps.
FISH helps thousands of Northern Nevada families get back on their feet each year by giving “a hand up, not a handout”.
Their services include an emergency food closet, emergency shelters and a workforce development program geared at moving underemployed clients from minimum wage jobs to meaningful careers with local employers.
What Your Money Does
A donation of $2.50 can provide a warm and nutritious meal for one person.
$10 can feed a family of four one meal in the Family Dining room.
$200 can feed a full house of 80 people.
