2015 is here and JWilliams Staffing is focusing on making better choices and working toward more quality in our everyday lives. By focusing on health, happiness, and wellness, we are able to make better choices for ourselves and focus more on giving back to those around us. In an effort to give back to our local communities, we recently asked each of our regions to choose an organization that it would support throughout 2015.Today, we want to give you a brief introduction of each organization and how each one works tirelessly to impact our communities.

Freedom House is dedicated to bringing hope, restoration and a new life to survivors of human trafficking by providing a safe home and long-term aftercare. Through Freedom House, our Northern California office has specifically partnered with The Nest, a residential shelter for minors that is located in Santa Clara County. With support from the local community and an anonymous benefactor, our Northern California office has already reached their initial goal of raising $20,000 and has set a new goal of $25,000.
