Capital campaign officially kicks off!

SER publicly announced its Pathways to Potential capital campaign with a news conference held at the site of its new Workforce Opportunity Center at 1710 Telephone Road in Houston. Mayor Sylvester Turner, Harris County Judge Ed Emmett, City Council Member Robert Gallegos, Commissioner Jack Mormon, Senator Sylvia Garcia, and other supporters spoke about the importance of the $17 million project and celebrated the $11.5 million raised so far as a joint public-private venture.

Once completed, the Center will double SER's direct client service and training capacity including added capacity for a training course much-needed after Hurricane Harvey, NCCER CORE Construction, which can place trained construction workers in jobs in three weeks. The Center is being constructed in two phases, with the first part well underway. The first phase of this new 22,000 square foot facility will be one-of-a-kind in the nation, featuring Houston’s first Career Café and connecting job seekers to middle-skills jobs. The Center will also create a hub in the community for job seekers, employers, community partners, and local residents to intersect and connect. The second phase of the capital campaign will include a 30,000 square foot warehouse which will enable SER to expand its job training services to industries beyond construction, banking, and logistics, to new sectors, including healthcare training programs.
