Eligibility for CityLink Services
Awesome! Now, we're going to ask you a few eligibility questions.
A quick note: We know that we just met and these are rather personal questions.... Sorry to jump right into it. Rest assured, your answers and all personal information will be kept strictly confidential.

We're so sorry you’re going through this.
Not having stable housing is extremely difficult and can affect so much of the rest of life. As CityLink training programs will require a lot of your time, energy, and focus, we don’t want to put anything else on your plate before you’ve found a reliable place to sleep.
For assistance finding shelter, please call the Central Access Point: Help for Homeless 513-381-7233 or go to Strategies to End Homelessness.
It may feel daunting to overcome where you are right now, but you can do this! We’ve met and worked with hundreds of individuals who have been homeless at one point and, with perseverance, hard work, and faith, have gone onto successful careers, home ownership, and more. We are rooting for you!
Once you have found stable housing, we hope you will consider CityLink services again!

To help assess whether your criminal record will be too great of barrier in IT, please call Per Scholas Manager of Admission, Victoria Grooms, at 513-357-2000 x 3023.
Unfortunately, any convictions will make finding employment very difficult in the healthcare industry. As a result, if you you have a criminal record, we don't want you to spend time going through a training that will not result in a job.
Unfortunately, due to our proximity to a childcare facility, we are unable to proceed in the enrollment process. Thank you for your understanding.
