We at CVOC realize that, due to disability or transportation issues, not everyone can make it to one of our service centers. To that end, we employ the CVOC Mobile Unit to bring our services to sites throughout the community.
The CVOC Mobile Unit is a 37-ft. long, custom bus equipped with air conditioning, computers, copiers, fax capability and Internet access. Its purpose is to provide outreach, job search, résumé building and program intake/eligibility across CVOC’s service area of Madera, Merced and Stanislaus counties.
