Thomas House Family Shelter is proud to be partnering with community organizations to give Garden Grove teens employment experience. We are so excited to have Tiffany Ho, Jhoana Flores, Sang Ong, and Ken Nguyen working with us this summer. They would like to introduce themselves: "We are all upcoming seniors who are part of Garden Grove and United Way’s program that gives teenagers like us the privilege of getting involved with different companies and organizations as interns to gain work experience and knowledge before we actually enter the work world. For those that finish the whole program to the end without failing, they get a scholarship as well as the experience for their future career. We were given the opportunity to come and work at the Thomas House Family Shelter and help with marketing and communications projects, particularly social media, as well as learning about what Thomas House does for the community." Please welcome them to Thomas House! ... See MoreSee Less
