NAPO-WDC members returned to Homestretch to give Paper Management classes for their clients. Under the auspices of Quantum Leap®, the community service program of NAPO, these classes were given to 43 adults in the Homestretch program. This program empowers homeless families to attain housing and self-sufficiency by giving them the skills, knowledge and hope that they need to become productive participants in their communities.
Each participant received hanging and manilla file folders that were donated by Pendaflex as well as a portable file box. Our trainers taught the classes how to set up files by category as well as basic paper management principles. Many thanks to our Quantum Leap® team for a job well done!
