Interview with Henry Street's David Garza

 

 

In this interview, Henry Street Settlement’s President and CEO David Garza, a partner in our Jobs to Build On program, speaks about the importance of employment services for his organization.

"Workforce services are critically important to Henry Street," says Garza. "They speak to some of the fundamental building blocks of our organization: economic self-sufficiency, health, and wellbeing. Work is one of the most meaningful and esteemed connections you can help someone make. People aren’t defined only by what they do, but it’s an important component of human dignity and self-sufficiency. Our commitment to workforce programs is directly aligned with our mission of opening doors of opportunity, and it intersects with each one of our program areas."
