Albert Hoch, Facilities Manager, Haselwood Family YMCA

The Haselwood Family YMCA in Silverdale, Washington, opened June 1, 2011, providing a much-needed community service to the greater Central and North Kitsap areas. The YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties strives to share the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility through programs that focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. To fulfill this mission, we recruit, develop and maintain a diverse workforce committed to serving others, building strong relationships.

While recruiting for custodial staff, we were contacted by representatives from Peninsula Services who provided us with several highly-qualified and experienced candidates for these positions. After meeting and interviewing these individuals, we found several of those referrals to be among the strongest, passionate and best qualified in our search.

We offered positions and they accepted employment. Since its opening, the operational tempo and growth of this branch of the YMCA has been extraordinary. Our staff members recommended to us by Peninsula Services are among the most dedicated, reliable, committed and positive employees we have.

While some employees may have disabilities, their employment needs are addressed by the staff from Peninsula Services in the form of Job Coaches. These coaches provide assistance and guidance during the first few weeks of employment, ensuring the individual is meeting our needs. This is done at no cost to the employer. Peninsula Services has also provided additional services for subsequent referrals, including background and reference checks, qualification and experience reviews and transportation arrangements.

Peninsula Services makes every effort to ensure the person referred will be an asset to the employer and not require any additional time and effort to train for the position hired. This strong community partnership helps us connect with our neighbors and helps bridge the gap in a critical community need. I am sincerely grateful for Peninsula Services’ continued recommendations for their valuable resources in reliable personnel staffing and I recommend their services without reservation.

-Kieran Foster, Ameriforce - Bremerton, WA

"Peninsula Services provided excellent customer service to our company by listening to our needs for an Administrative Assistant / Safety Specialist. We interviewed two of Debra Fa'aita's customer's. It was a difficult decision as we could only hire one of them. That employee has been with us for a year and a excellent fit!!

From our staff members and participants

Andrea Johnston - Peninsula Services Executive Assistant

My name is Andrea Johnston. Back in 1996 I was a displaced homemaker, a survivor of domestic abuse, with a bone disease and broken hip. I didn't have much hope that I could find a job but I knew I wanted to re-enter the workplace and needed some help. That was when DVR partnered me with Peninsula Services. With the guidance of my very caring Placement Specialist I received training in computers (having barely even seen one before) and the modern workplace; gained experience through trial assessments where I volunteered with various employers willing to give me a chance; gained self-confidence and self-respect. I went through a number of surgeries and personal challenges, but Peninsula Services stood by me and gave me the time to heal.

When I was offered a position at Peninsula Services as a receptionist I couldn't have been happier. They were pleased with my progress and thought I would do a good job. Now I've been here over 15 years and am the Executive Assistant to the CEO. Peninsula Services gave me the opportunity to start a new life. I am forever grateful.
