“I cannot express how kind, patient, pleasant, and thoughtful the whole staff is – an experience that could have been extremely stressful turned out to be extremely fun besides educational.  I thank each and every one of the staff.  You all know what to do, how to do it, and how to convey what I needed to do without ever being condescending or angry.  I would recommend FTS to anyone, anytime.” – directly from a completed Consumer Survey


“I have participated in several different programs over time to try to re-enter the workforce.  This program was by far the most real.  Things are done here like the real world and I feel people will be more prepared for the current workforce.” – directly from a completed Consumer Survey


“This has been such a positive experience for me.  I would recommend other to seek this out as a place to start if they are unsure what their skills and abilities are.  The staff was always kind and professional and I had an overall feeling that they want you to succeed in whatever areas interest you.  They are honest with recognizing what abilities are lacking or present for employment.” – directly from a completed Consumer Survey
