Workforce Challenge

Dustin came to Greenville County Workforce Development with many barriers: he was unemployed, homeless, had no transportation, no High School Diploma and a criminal background. He also had no support from any family, so he found temporary refuge at Greenville Rescue Mission.

Workforce Solution

Dustin was referred to WIA for intensive and training services. He worked closely with his WIA Case Manager and they began addressing his barriers one by one. He remained focused on creating a resume, improving his interviewing skills and obtaining his GED. He also obtained a Silver credential in WorkKeys®. The focus that was required to complete these tasks helped Dustin realize that he must take his life seriously and make significant improvements.

Outcomes & Benefits

Dustin is now gainfully employed and resides in his own apartment near work. He walks to work everyday, rain or shine, while saving for his car. He is very happy with his lifestyle changes and accomplishments. He enjoys his work and looks forward to more future success. Dustin's motto is, “Do what you can, where you are, with what you’ve got." Congratulations, Dustin, on the many improvements in your life and on your employment with Mosaic Color and Additives!
