Sara, an unemployed single mom, struggled with addiction for years after tragically losing her daughter. When she was ready to make positive changes in her life, she turned to Access.
Sara learned that the 11-week Access to Employment Program (A2E) could help her find a pathway to re-entering the workforce, so she enrolled. Dedicated to success, Sara made it to A2E class every week even though she had to walk to get there. The A2E Employment Navigator staff learned that prior to 2013 Sara had worked in the healthcare industry as a CNA and had been working towards becoming a nurse. So, when Sara graduated from A2E, they worked together doing job searches, updating her resume, and applying for jobs.
Thanks to Sara’s determination and the Access staff team supporting her, last month Sara started work at an area hospital as a Patient Care Technician with full benefits, great pay and a very nice signing bonus!
