“Our home care business has had significant success finding qualified job applicants at the Austin Up 55+ Job Fairs. James came to us with experience in the ministry and past work as a caregiver. He decided to return to professional caregiving in the home in addition to his ministry work. Olga starting working with us after being a caregiver for her mother and retiring from a long career at IRS.
