Dream Weaver, Inc., at 57 West Main Street in White Sulphur Springs, is pleased to announce the receipt of a grant from the Pyles and Turner Foundation. The grant will help Dream Weaver develop an employment preparation program for first-time job seekers.

The prep program, called Heads Up! will aid participants in preparing resumes, filling out applications and learning other workplace skills. The program is free and will consist of a twice-weekly six-week session. See your guidance counselor or call Dream Weaver for more information.

The Pyles& Turner Foundation has been distributing grants to West Virginia nonprofit groups and organizations for over 20 years. Grantees share the common characteristics of limited economic resources, nonprofit status, a focus on West Virginia and its citizens, and the desire to improve lives.

Dream Weaver, Inc. was established six years ago to help young adults and the disabled improve their ability to lead productive, independent lives. The organization’s programs are continuously developing and expanding. Dream Weaver welcomes donations and volunteers.
