Our Students

“My life before 2 Hands 2 Employ was a lot shaky, very weary. I had gotten in some trouble and was stopped by the police. That is when I went to the Dream Center and with their help I got back on my feet. Dream Center introduced me to 2 Hands 2 Employ and now I work at the London Hotel as a prep cook and I am on my way to becoming a line cook.”
