We mourn the loss of Benevolent team member Kyle Kehus. Gifts to help someone in need will honor his legacy.

Working as the CNC Program Coordinator for Jane Addams Resource Corp. is an extremely rewarding experience. My job allows me to come into the lives of individuals during a time of uncertainty and give them a clear path to a bright future. Along with manufacturing skills training, JARC assists its trainees with financial coaching, employment coaching, income supports, and job placement assistance to help ensure their success. I believe it is by providing our trainees with a whole team of advocates that we see them succeed. Each day I am motivated by the work these students put in toward achieving their goals and I am deeply grateful I get to watch the process. While we do our part at JARC to guide our trainees as much as we can, ultimately the individuals you see on this page are taking control of their lives and creating a better future for themselves and their families.
