Soft Skill Learning & Work Experience
Production & Janitorial Services Work

"Tenneco / Federal-Mogul has been working with Ascend (Holiday House) for several years to have piston ring kits assembled every week. The response to our fluctuating demands that often come with little notice, has been superb, and beyond my expectations. I can count on Ascend (Holiday House) both in timeliness and quality. I have visited their operation several times and have always been impressed with the customer service orientation and efficiency of the organization and with the positive attitude and gratitude of the Ascend clients for the opportunity to work with us. I would highly recommend their services to any company in the area with an outsourcing need that fits the Ascend client skill set."

"Have you ever waited for the bus at the Maritime Transit Station? The reason it is so clean is because of a woman from Manitowoc named Marlene, who is also a client in our Integrated Employment Program. Marlene cleans the Transit Station five days a week. She started off working three times a week with a job coach and learned the required skills to do her job. Then she was asked to clean five days a week and now is 100 % on her own. Being able to have a job in the community has made Marlene so happy. It is the first thing she talks about when she sees her peers and family members."
