KANSAS CITY, Missouri – Since 1995, the Bishop Sullivan Center has been helping people find jobs.

With its job placement program, it helps the unemployed find work through one-on-one counseling. Many of the people they help don’t have internet access and the center helps them search for work, along with providing resume building classes and assisting with the necessary attire for an interview.
