Story of Impact
Nick, a 52-year-old veteran, came into the Resource Center seeking help to get back on his feet financially. He was working for a motel part time while also staying there, but he did not make enough money to cover all his needs. Through our Financial Care program, we were able to connect Nick with our Career Wow team. Our Career Wow team member, Tyler, helped Nick create a resume and gave him the confidence he needed to look for a job.
“We did a total redo on my resume and with that man that day, I realized something. I initially was there thinking I’m a screw up, but Tyler made me realize what I had accomplished and what a man I had become.” He then shared with us that the hotel he was working for hired him full time! “I think the owner of motel saw something different, he saw my confidence, my strength, and my attitude.”
