HOPE grants support health care training

More than 115 people gained training and jobs in health care through the Healthcare Occupations Pathways to Employment grant at Clackamas Community College during the past three years.

CCC helped a total of 192 people with education and training through the $510,909 from the U.S. Department of Labor, said Jodi Stapleton, the college’s grant liaison.

The grant work, conducted through a consortium of seven Oregon community colleges and WorkSource system partners, ended in June.

During the past three years, the grant provided funding to train, place and retain Oregonians in the health care field. HOPE uses the Oregon Career Pathways model to deliver training for in-demand health care occupations that lead to credentials recognized by industry.

The grant was aimed at unemployed, dislocated and incumbent workers facing barriers to employment. Participants were referred to the program by sources such as the Oregon Employment Department and WorkSource Clackamas, workforce services at Clackamas Community College. Health Science instructors at CCC provided the instruction and training.

Participants in the program at CCC received training and were placed in jobs in health care fields.
