The Nashville Opportunities Industrialization Center (OIC) seeks to provide superior employment and training services to individuals who seek a better quality of life.  The OIC was founded in 1969 and provides GED preparation, job training and placement services to economically disadvantaged persons in the community.  An $11,000 grant is awarded to support the HealthCARE program, which is a comprehensive new healthcare job training and placement initiative for people who have multiple barriers to employment.  OIC will be guided by and utilize the Radical Loving Care model as they train and place OIC clients in entry-level administrative, maintenance and health worker positions at local inpatient, outpatient, long-term care and hospice facilities.  The primary goal for OIC staff and for the clients enrolled in HealthCARE is to accentuate and model the caring side of work in the healthcare industry.
