“Attending the Greater Paterson OIC has given me back what I thought was lost. I will be grateful always to OIC for their support and encouragement in helping me to re-discover myself.” – Valicia Simon
One of the things we enjoy most in our work at GPOIC is the opportunity to meet a range of interesting, talented, and motivated people; One such person is Kenneth Weston. Ken is one of the most gifted individuals we’ve had come through our organization. What we appreciate most is his ability to bounce back in the face of personal and professional adversity and rebuild his life. The goals he set for himself when joining our training program were a part of that process.
