Latrobe Street Mission hosts job fair

PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - Some Mid-Ohio Valley residents could be on their way to getting a new job, thanks to the Latrobe Street Mission in Parkersburg.

Dozens of people attended a job fair at the mission on Friday.

It was held for the mission’s residents and the community.

Some of the participating organizations were Mancan and Simonton Windows.

The goal was to help people with the job process.

“The community where we are right now is a poor area so when you have an opportunity to be able to get work and get transportation and get that income back into the household then that household will flourish," said Jim Sims, the assistant director of operations at the mission.

He said they had a great turnout.
