DIVA/DIVO is a service provided to women and men in poverty that are entering or re-entering the work force.

• All clients must be referred by an agency or organization that is working on job readiness with the client.
DIVA/DIVO is the last step in that process.
• Client visits are by appointment only and set up with DIVA/DIVO through said agency.
DIVA/DIVO will accept one referral per client

Step 1
The service provider must email
Michele Billingsley at

Step 2

DIVA/DIVO will contact service provider and set up a first visit for the client.
