Lutheran Social Services is the best. I participated in one of their program, Steps 2 Success, the program stands by it name. The counselors are very caring. They genuinely want you to succeed. They work with you to help you until it happen. I recommend this program to anyone out there who needs some guidance with achieving their goals; whether it be finding work, school, or finance. They'll work with you. They did it for me, and it works.
