Meet Amy

Workforce Challenge

Amy was laid off from the aviation industry in 2009. She is a single mother of four children that always wanted to work in the healthcare field.

Workforce Solution

Amy enrolled in a training program to become an RN. Through Workforce Alliance programs, Amy was provided much needed assistance paying her mortgage, utilities, and even minor car repairs intermittently throughout her training program. These supportive services provided thorough the National Emergency Grant allowed Amy to concentrate on her studies and worry less about her financial situation.

Outcomes & Benefits

Amy has now secured a position as a Behavioral Health Nurse (RN) at a local hospital. She is confident she made the right decision turning down a recall to return to her old job, as she is making an equal wage and has better job security for her and her family.
