Services & Information: 

We also host and co-locate trainings and counseling sessions with reputable nonprofit agencies throughout our service footprint.

Delivery of services – whether short- or long-term training or technical assistance/counseling – is organized to accommodate client needs. Although we maintain office hours of 40 hours each week in our San Jose office, client needs dictate that we also schedule programs after regular work hours during evenings, weeknights and weekends. Our formal long-term training is scheduled during evening hours and most of our short-term programs are also offered during evenings or weekends.  The office is also open Monday – Friday 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

WBC programs are extended to the public on a nondiscriminatory basis.

Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities will be made if requested at least two weeks in advance. Also, language assistance services are available for limited English proficient individuals. Contact Asbury Lockett at alockett@anewamerica.org or (408) 326- 2669 to request accommodations for persons with disabilities and/or language assistance services.

Planned closures for the WBC each year are New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, July 4th (Independence Day), Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and the Friday after, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
