The Resource Center at Sulphur Springs’ primary focus area is financial stability through workforce development and economic support. We work with individuals and community partners to address employment, educational and social service needs for our clients. SSRC also employs proven programs which enables job seekers to receive training in employment sectors which will provide a sustainable living wage.
Our work is part of a larger neighborhood plan fostering economic stability and community involvement. We offer community coordination and services to connect families to needed resources.
