For our Northeast Ohio communities, NMTC has meant access to healthcare that wouldn’t otherwise be there; the ability for parents to be with their sick child every day rather than just when they can find a way to get to the hospital; accessible jobs in non-metro areas; and training for the welding trade to give people a well-paying job while helping to fill the employment gap. These, among many other reasons are why NMTC is critical to our region.
