LAS VEGAS -- A one-of-a-kind organization is celebrating its one anniversary and the 1,000 people they've helped get hired.
Leaders of One Stop say even though Nevada has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country, companies are still hiring. They say learning a skill is the first step to finding a job.
The room is packed with people from organizations like GNJ Family Life Center, Goodwill Career Connections, and the Southern Nevada Regional Housing Authority. They are here to celebrate the anniversary of One Stop.
“We have several different service providers and or training providers under one roof. So someone doesn't have to go all over town, they can come here,” executive director for Workforce Connections Ardell Galbreth said.
Galbreth says the collaboration between many agencies is the key to One Stop's success.
