May declared Community Action Month, water donations for Martin Co. accepted   no comments

Posted at 11:44 am in News

Johnson County Judge/Executive R.T. “Tucker” Daniel signed a proclamation declaring May as Community Action Month in Johnson County. Pictured are Big Sandy Area Community Action Program staff members Faye Rife, Alecia Conley-Knox, Edith Hill, Executive Director Mike Howell, and Cathy Tackett.

On Wednesday, Johnson County Judge/Executive R.T. “Tucker” Daniel signed a proclamation declaring the month of May to be Community Action Month in Johnson County to align with the state and national Community Action Month celebrations.

Community Action Month honors the work of over 1,000 agencies across the United States which are dedicated to connecting millions of children and families to greater opportunities, transforming their lives, and making our communities stronger. Locally, Johnson County is served by Big Sandy Area Community Action Program (BSACAP).

This year, as part of Community Action Month, Big Sandy Area Community Action Program will be accepting donations of bottled water and gallon jugs for the citizens of Martin County.

BSACAP Executive Director Mike Howell said, “Our agency serves individuals and families in Floyd, Johnson, Martin, Magoffin, and Pike Counties. We provide a variety of programs designed to help people become self-sufficient and have a good foundation on which they can build their lives.” Howell explained that Community Action’s mission is to “help people help themselves.”

At different points throughout the year, BSACAP provides college scholarships, vouchers for home gardening materials, and assistance with home heating costs for low-income individuals and families. All year though, the agency provides weatherization, rental assistance, Head Start, Goodwill vouchers, and SS/SSI Representative Payee services to low-income individuals and families, and educational workshops and career services to people of all income levels.

Howell said that collecting water donations for Martin County makes sense for the organization. “We know that Martin County is in need,” he said, referencing the ongoing water crisis in the county, “and as an organization, we are continually thinking about the needs of our low-income families and children and elderly. The situation these families face is difficult and the added costs of purchasing water can become a strain for some.”

As a result, Big Sandy Area Community Action Program will celebrate the month of May by collecting donations of bottled water and gallon jugs at each of their county office locations through Friday, May 25th and then delivering all donations to Martin County for distribution.

If you would like to join in helping Martin County, you can drop off your donations of water at the Johnson County Court House, 230 Court St., Paintsville. If you have any questions, call (606) 789-3641. Offices are open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

BSACAP will not be accepting monetary donations for this particular project. If you wish to make a monetary donation, please do so through the Rockin’ Appalachian Moms Project (RAMP), who will be distributing the donations on behalf of BSACAP. Visit their website at www.rampamerica.org. In Martin County, contact Melissa Stepp, RAMP Program Director at 606-626-6654.

Career Services connecting jobseekers and employers   no comments

Posted at 2:23 pm in News

New hires at Harbor Freight Tools in Paintsville were able to complete their computer-based training at the BSACAP office just down the road from the new store while it was being prepared for the grand opening.

Harbor Freight Tools, a retailer providing a variety of tools, automotive supplies, and home improvement items, opened a new store in Paintsville last month and Big Sandy Community Action Program’s Career Services team helped them to connect with strong candidates for employment and get them ready to start their new jobs.

In coordination with Eastern Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program (EKCEP) and Kentucky Career Centers, BSACAP’s Community Action Career Services team assisted the company in finding, hiring, and onboarding employees in time for the grand opening.
Harbor Freight connected with BSACAP’s Employer Account Representative who learned about the company’s local employment needs and expectations.

In order to ensure that the company was able to open the Paintsville store on time, BSACAP advertised for and then hosted a job fair at the Country Music Highway Museum. Over 200 local jobseekers were able to meet with company representatives and participate in on-the-spot interviews. Career Advisors ensured the event moved smoothly by assisting jobseekers with registration and paperwork.

Community Action Career Services Manager Erica Ash said, “The central goal of our work is developing the local economy. So we want to help our clients through the hiring process from start to finish. We are working to help people access the education and training they need to be strong employees and then helping them connect to employers. And employers know they can reach out to us when they are looking for strong candidates to work for them and when they need help with planning for their growing businesses.”

After a busy and successful job fair, the store’s new hires needed to complete begin their training; however, work was still being completed on the store’s interior and everyone needed to stay on schedule.

After learning of the store’s needs, BSACAP was able to arrange for Store Manager Billy McGuire to conduct the computer-based portion of the onboarding process at the Paintsville Community Action office. By providing the employer with a conference room and computers, along with internet and phone access, BSACAP ensured that the new area business was able to open the store on time and with 40 new employees.

Mike Howell, Executive Director of BSACAP said, “This company offered 40 new jobs to local people who will be paid over the minimum wage and who have opportunities to earn bonuses. We need to see more employers moving into the area who are ready to pay better wages. It is wonderful to that people are setting up shop in our area and we want to support them any way we possibly can.”

BSACAP’s Community Action Career Services are made available to jobseekers and employers through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act (WIOA).

BSACAP makes hiring easy for new business   no comments

Posted at 2:20 pm in News

When Logan Corporation set up shop in Salyersville, they began reaching out to local partners to help their business grow and thrive. Their research into hiring in the region and their area connections pointed them to Eastern Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program and Big Sandy Area Community Action Program’s Employer Services Team, who helped them find the best path to success for them.

Joey Osborne, the Employer Account Representative for BSACAP, met with Randy Risner, the General Manager over Manufacturing and Chief Design Engineer for Logan Corp. Risner explained that he had a lot of a lot of interest from applicants, but wading through the stacks of applications was time consuming and reached a point where it was unhelpful. “We had a lot of applicants coming in, but there were a lot people who had no background in the work. Hiring anyone is a gamble, but I just had a big stack of papers and not much information to go on,” Risner said.

BSACAP’s Employer Account Representative introduced Risner to the options available to him through the Employer Services Team. Once Risner explained his needs, BSACAP’s WIOA Career Advisors began screening applicants and making referrals for truly qualified applicants. Risner said that having a steady stream of vetted applicants made his hiring work much easier. “There are a lot people who just sign up to sign up with us. I would rather see applicants who are going through a hiring program and who are looking for work in the right way, the smart way. They are the ones who tend to last longer.”

And employee retention rates are critical to Logan’s success. Risner explained, “We have clients and customers who make yearly orders. Most of the time, they want exactly what they had the year before. If I have a high turnover rate, I won’t have people who have a clue what was done the year before.”

Additionally, Risner must train an employee for two to three months before they know the work and they need at least a year before they become fully reliable workers due to the nature of products the company produces. BSACAP is able to assist him with this as well through cost-sharing on-the-job training opportunities. During the time an employee is being trained, some of the cost of that employee is offset by funds made available through the Employer Services Team as part of the National Emergency Grant and WIOA.

For Logan Corporation, having vetted applicants and being able to offset the cost of training new hires by working with EKCEP and BSACAP provided them with a reliable path to growth.

Moving from coal to the classroom   no comments

Posted at 2:18 pm in News

Pictured is Corey Conley, who lost his job repairing coal mining equipment due to the downturn in the industry. After working with BSACAP, Conley became a trained CNC machinist and is teaching others his trade at the new eKAMI school in Paintsville.

Corey Conley, a resident of Paintsville, performed equipment repair for mining operations in the area and his work was based out of Huntington, WV. In July of 2016, Conley was laid off from his job due to the downturn in the coal industry. “Your life changes dramatically when you’re laid off. All of a sudden you have to worry about providing for your family where everything was taken care of before,” he said.

As a dislocated worker, Conley was eligible to take part in the Community Impact Grant administered through Eastern Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program and Big Sandy Area Community Action Program. The Community Impact Grant is a National Emergency Grant. It provides funds to assist individuals who served in ancillary positions to the coal industry to receive education and training that will help them to transition into new work.

Conley said that he had always been mechanically inclined and felt that becoming a machinist would be a great new path for him. With the assistance of BSACAP’s Career Advisor Sandy Grimm, Conley prepared to attend the CNC Machinist School in Indiana. The training required for his certification meant that he spent nearly four months away from home, but it gave him a great opportunity to meet new people and study with really good instructors. Conley said that working with Grimm was great. “Sandy was awesome. She told me up front that it was going to be hard, but she made sure that I had everything that I needed for school and she called to check in and make sure that everything was going well,” he said.

After receiving his certification, Conley became an instructor at the East Kentucky Advanced Manufacturing Institute (eKAMI) in his hometown of Paintsville and began teaching classes.

EKAMI opened in February and will offer 16-week training courses in fields related to advanced manufacturing including machine building and tool maintenance required for both the general private sector and the aerospace industry.

After spending eight years driving to Huntington for work every day, Conley is excited to have steady work closer to home.

A GED and a whole new life   no comments

Posted at 2:14 pm in News

Esther Kirk, of Martin County, has a whole new life now that she has her GED and gets to work out in the community. She is a participant in BSACAP’s Senior Community Service Employment Program and studied with the Martin County Adult Education Skills-U.

“I’ve dreamed of this my whole life,” said Esther Kirk of Martin County after receiving her GED. Kirk joined Big Sandy Area Community Action Program’s Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) and began to find a new way forward in life after living through some tough years.

When Kirk was just 16 years-old her mother passed away and she took on the responsibility of raising her 13 year-old and 3 year-old siblings. “There was not much income. We had it hard,” she said. She married at age 14 and had three children of her own who kept her busy. “I raised gardens. I canned. I milked cows. I churned butter. And I babysat for the rest of the family,” she said.

“I never went to a prom. I never went to a high school. I never had the childhood things that other kids had. It was just out of the question for me,” she said.

Years later, Kirk would find herself looking for a new start. Her husband, who was also her childhood sweetheart, passed away 12 years ago. Her children are grown. And she was living on a small fixed income. It was time to look for a job.

Kirk heard about the SCSEP from a friend who had been through the program. Through the program and with the assistance of Martin County Adult Education, Kirk began a new life of studying and working outside of the home.

She said that studying for her exam was really hard. “It was all new to me. Back, 50-some years ago, I only went to the 8th grade. I didn’t have algebra. I didn’t have the decimal points. I didn’t have any of the new stuff they’ve got today. So I had to really work hard. And I had good teachers to help me.”

Through SCSEP Kirk was also able to be hired for the first time for work outside the home. As a participant in the program, she has been able to hold positions with Goodwill, Appalachian Reach Out, and at Sheldon Clark High School.

Kirk, who didn’t get to spend time in high school when she was younger, now gets to regularly work with high school students working in the county high school’sResource Center. “They’re all sweet kids and my two bosses are great.” She said, “My jobs have been very rewarding. I’m out in the public a lot now. I always stayed home with my kids and very seldom went any place and now I’m just everywhere!”

Returning to her GED, she said, “My high school diploma is something that I have wanted all my life. I’ve dreamed of having it all my life. And I always felt beneath everybody because I only went through the 8th grade.” But now that she has it, nothing is going to stop her. She has even signed up to take a college computer class and keep herself moving forward.

She said, “I feel like I’m up with everybody else. I feel proud and blessed.”

Big Sandy Area Community Action’s Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is a program designed to help low-income people over the age of 55 to receive the job training, education, and support they may need to find employment.
