“This program is doing more for me than just finding a job. It is giving me confidence to advocate for myself. Because of your team and the program, I’m encouraged to get my GED. The case management is helping to open up and speak about past trauma that I have never told anyone about. Your program has made so many things possible for me that I never would have even had the courage to think about. That’s how great this program and what it offers is. It’s about more than just employment. It gave me a new start to my life.”
