Meet Tess

Workforce Challenge

When Tess came into our office, she was only working a few hours a week as an EMT. She was a recovered drug/alcohol addict who had been drug and alcohol free for nine years. She needed a paramedic certification to make her more employable. She had a young stepdaughter and her husband was disabled and only able to work part time.

Workforce Solution

We enrolled Tess in the WIA program and gave her a scholarship to attend training for her paramedic certification.

Outcomes & Benefits

Tess completed her training, received her paramedic certification, was hired as a full-time paramedic and more than doubled her salary.
