The Bay Area’s Most Inspiring Lunch Hour

On May 2, 2016, the Strictly Business Awards Luncheon gathered more than 1,000 business and community leaders to celebrate the hard work of our community – people from all walks of life – who turned their lives around through finding work with JVS. We also honored exemplary employers that support JVS in part by hiring our clients.

Unforgettable Stories

No one tells the story of JVS better than our clients. Learn about how Patricia went from long-term unemployed to a thriving career in medical administration.

“I had never, ever been laid off. I applied for well over 100 jobs and never got a response. I’m sure it was my age. I knew if I was giving the chance, I could show how good of a worker I could be.”
