CHARLOTTE — A housing assistance nonprofit is holding a job fair in North Carolina’s largest city to immediately hire 500 workers as part of an expansion.

The Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America said it will hold a jobs fair Friday and Saturday at its counseling center in Charlotte. Officials said Thursday that the nonprofit wants to add more than 1,000 jobs over the next five years.

The jobs will pay an average annual wage of $35,982, and the state will provide $1 million in incentives to bring the work to North Carolina.

The Boston-based nonprofit provides counseling and aid to those with poor credit, and it offers loans with no down payments or closing costs.

Parents of children enrolled at a Wilmington after school program met Thursday night to learn about the charges filed against the program’s owner.

Investigators notified the families of 42 children about the closed-door meeting with law enforcement and the district attorney’s office.

Sixty-one-year-old John Maisenhelder, who owns Creative After School Training, or CAST, faces three counts of taking indecent liberties with a child. After the meeting, one parent said they learned police have video of Maisenhelder inappropriately touching children. Some parents cannot believe the accusations.

Parent Natsumi Ueki said, “I personally asked my boy, one of my boys, and he said he never did anything wrong to him. He just has been a wonderful, wonderful karate teacher for my boys.”

Maisenhelder is in the New Hanover County Jail under $500,000 secured bond, reduced from $1 million dollars.

If parents have concerns about this investigation, they can call sheriff’s detectives at 910-279-9973.
