Meet Angela. Angela is a veteran of the single mom-job. She is the single provider for her four wonderful kids. She has some difficulties in learning specific skills that have, in the past, interrupted her educational and employment paths.
When Angela first walked into Goodwill, she was withdrawn and unspeaking. Through skills training and one-on-one attention, she began to signal some spirit and sureness in her abilities and take pride in her indisputable role as her family’s champion.
Angela carries a strong work moral and a deep commitment to the things she cares about. She is successfully working evenings so she is able to be with her kids before school and be home when they return. She soon plans to pursue her GED and has a strong desire to improve and provide the best life for her family – and herself.
“The person Angela was when she first walked in to Goodwill for services is almost unrecognizable after realizing her potential and learning what she is capable of accomplishing.” – Mackenzie Baird, Career Navigator, Employment Services, Goodwill
