Meet Sophia

Workforce Challenge

Sophia came to the Workforce Center looking for assistance to complete her last semester in the Social Work degree program. She was trying to complete her practicum, as required for her training program, but as an unemployed single mother, was having a struggle paying her bills as well as tuition, fees and books.

Workforce Solution

So she could continue her course work, the Workforce Alliance was able to assist Sophia with paying the costs of her education, rent and utilities. Once Sophia graduated, she was referred to the Business Services Team to receive assistance with her resume and to improve her connection with available jobs in her field.

Outcomes & Benefits

Sophia is now happily employed full time as a Social Worker making a high wage. Sophia is now self sufficient and prepared to give back through her rewarding career.
