When first arriving at the Goodwill Workforce Connection Center, Constance was filled with uncertainty and doubt. Homeless and living in a place that provides emergency shelter services, she wondered if she would ever be able to keep a roof over her head and for her two young children, ages three and four.
With limited job skills and a high rate of unemployment all around her, she was doubtful that any employer would give her a chance. Upon arriving at Goodwill’s Workforce Connection Center, Constance knew she had come to the right place. The Goodwill Workforce Connection Center staff helped Constance to hone her capabilities, develop a resume, and access available jobs in the area. Through TalentBridge, Goodwill’s staffing and recruitment service, Constance was made aware of an administrative staff position. Before long, Constance was working at a job she loved and earning enough to get her own apartment and support her children.
Grateful for the opportunity and with a “pay it forward” mindset, Constance now spends time volunteering at the Goodwill Workforce Connection Center during the summers, helping others see their own potential and restoring hope.
