Best Foot Forward is assisting individuals in the area get employed. We had two successes in December and two again in January. Congressman Tierney gave us his endorsement in a recent column.
"Feb. 14, 2012 Tierney E-Alert: John's Spotlight — Heart to Heart
"Each month, I highlight the accomplishments of a local resident or organization on the John's Spotlight section of my website. Today, I want to bring to your attention the Amesbury Heart to Heart program, a great example what can happen when a community comes together.
"Recently, Amesbury resident Rosemary Werner decided that Valentine's Day would be the perfect opportunity to show our service members how much they are appreciated. She helped bring together city residents of all ages to create a very unique Valentine's Day delivery for the wounded service members at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.
"... I'd like to point out that Rosemary, who recently retired but certainly has not slowed down, is also the director of Best Foot Forward, a volunteer-based community organization that provides a wide variety of free services to residents who need assistance with the job-hunting process. Since opening last spring, Best Foot Forward has already served more than 60 clients from the greater Amesbury area. Rosemary's efforts are truly a reminder of the important and selfless work being done in our local communities that often goes unnoticed" (http://www.tierney.house.gov/).
