Meet Judy

Workforce Challenge

Judy, an unemployed job seeker, walked into the Delta Workforce Center with a job offer in hand but limited finances to get the required work shoes and uniform pants to start the job. After meeting with staff, it was determined she may qualify for assistance under the Workforce Investment and Opportunity Act (WIOA) to get the items. Judy was connected to a WIOA representative in the office. Workforce Center staff discovered that Judy was homeless, living out of her truck with her dog.

Workforce Solution

After going through the appropriate steps, the WIOA program was able to help Judy secure a safe place to live by assisting with the first month's rent, as well as helping her purchase the required shoes and uniform pants so that she could start her new job. The WIOA program helped Judy stabilize her housing situation which enabled her to focus on succeeding on her new job.

Outcomes & Benefits

Because of the help Judy received through the WIOA program and from Delta Workforce Center staff, Judy was able to start, keep and succeed on her new job. She is now able to pay her rent and lives on one acre of land which has plenty of room for her dog to run around. Best of luck, Judy!
