Meet Christina

Workforce Challenge

Cristina came to our WFC in October, 2012, after being laid off from a call center. She had no college education, was the mother of 2 small children and needed more education in order to be able to earn a salary comparable to her previous salary.

Workforce Solution

Cristina received a TAA scholarship to pay for her education for two years, received TRA benefits while attending school, and WIA DW benefits for gas expense to and from school.

Outcomes & Benefits

Christina graduated with an associate's degree as an Ophthalmic Technician in November, 2014. By March, 2015, she was working as an Ophthalmic Technician making a comparable salary with much room to grow in her new profession.
