Supporting the Westside during the Corona Virus Outbreak

As the health crisis surrounding COVID-19 continues to develop, Integrity and its Westside Works partner training organizations have decided to cancel all programs until the CDC and Georgia Department of Health recommend that it is safe to resume.

We are aware that this uncertainty will impact our clients who depend on us to provide the services that lead to strong soft skills, access to training programs, and ultimately better employment. This is why we are working hard to pivot to online orientation and learning management systems. This digital shift will allow us to deliver our NET program online, host webinars and provide online education.

For Clients:

We want to ensure that you have the resources and support you need during these challenging times.

You can still go to the program page of the website or call 404-458-6413 to register for upcoming classes as they are rescheduled. Integrity and Westside Works will also provide orientation online – a link to the orientation video will appear on our website within the next week. From there, clients will be assigned a case manager with whom they will be able to hold phone appointments.

If you were registered for a class that was scheduled to begin in late March or early April, your case manager will call you once the class has been rescheduled to let you know the new class start date.

For more information regarding online learning, be sure to ask your case manager.

Integrity remains committed to serving both Westside and Atlanta residents through hard and soft skills training, and employment support to insure that no one is left behind. Stay safe, get the assistance you need and look to Integrity for support both during this crisis and after it ends.
