My Own Business – The ”MOB” Squad – Pilot Program

co-sponsored by The United Way

Due to our long standing relationship and involvement in the community we serve, we are intimately aware and uniquely qualified to address the need for innovation and creativity in the approach toward handling the long term unemployed and underemployed. Genesis is committed to growing and adapting to meet this need and becoming a part of the solution. We believe entrepreneurship and business ownership is a viable and honorable option for those who have for so long felt disenfranchised from the American Dream.
