While our world has undoubtedly changed, our commitment to the community has remained the same. We are proud to continue to provide uninterrupted program offerings at our UP Center locations. Please note that face coverings are required at all times. Now more than ever, we are deeply grateful for your support.

Thank you Trulieve

With community involvement as one of the company’s core values, Truelieve has worked throughout the state and other parts of the country to ensure that marginalized communities are receiving the hand up they need to reach economic self-sufficiency. The company’s drive to help others lead to a perfect partnership with our Orlando campus.

During a recent visit the Trulieve team recognized that many of the machines in our computer lab were outdated, so they pulled together and donated thirty refurbished computers! These new PC’s are utilized many times throughout the day as individuals in our Life Enrichment Center log on to apply for and monitor government assistance including unemployment and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits. With increased functionality, these machines have allowed visitors to access the services they need much more quickly and efficiently. The UP Programs staff was also able to identify 11 participants that could utilize these computers on loan at home to participate in remote learning as part of our Success Training Employment Program (STEP). The computers are helping to facilitate daily learning in the areas of emotional intelligence, job acquisition and workforce development.

In addition to this generous computer donation, Truelieve also joined our STEP Employer Partner Network where they will hire and train STEP graduates regardless of any prior barriers to employment. We are so thankful for their desire to help connect and empower those working hard to reach their full potential!
