Meet Brenda

Workforce Challenge

Brenda, recently unemployed as a Dispatcher, was a single mother of two small children with very limited income when she sought out assistance from the Wichita Workforce Alliance.

Workforce Solution

Due to her lay off, she qualified to receive funding through the National Emergency Grant and returned to Wichita State University to complete her RN program that she had begun a few years prior.

Outcomes & Benefits

After obtaining her RN Brenda landed a job at Via Christi Health Center as a surgical nurse making over $21.00/hour. Not only did Brenda receive a significant increase from her previous hourly wage, but now she has skills that are in high demand in the healthcare field.
