One of the most unique offerings at Community Lifeline Center in McKinney is the organization's job-seeker program. 

"We have classes open not only to our clients, but to the community as a whole," explained Executive Director Christine Hockin-Boyd. "The classes walk individuals through the entire job-search process from skills assessments, resume writing, networking strategies, interviewing techniques and more."

Because Community Lifeline is moving to a new location with a larger training room and parking space, it is planning to expand the much-needed job-seeker program. 

"In order to do so, we need more volunteers," Hockin-Boyd said.

The program is currently led by Loraine Grubbs, the lead volunteer for this program. Her focus is the actual training that occurs during the classes, and she's looking to find someone to organize the program. The ideal candidate for the coordinator position would be a retired person with a human resource background.

In addition, training opportunities are available as well for volunteers. Any individuals with human resources, teaching, recruiting, business development, counseling, etc., backgrounds are desirable to lead the job-seeker workshops.

Prospective volunteers are invited to contact Grubbs at or 972-741-1989.

Grubbs also would like to meet with volunteers who aid job-support ministries at area churches.

"Perhaps we can combine efforts through our organization to better meet the needs of our unemployed people in Collin County," Hockin-Boyd said.
