Meet Long

Workforce Challenge

Long was recently released from prison and was referred to our program. Having a felony record and not having worked in 15 years poised a problem for Long.

Workforce Solution

Long was a prime candidate to work with our partners, Denver Works. They have the resources to work with individuals with background challenges. Long attended out Job Opportunity Fair on February 3, 2016. He was dressed ready to meet employers and gain employment. Teaming with Denver Works, he had the tips on how to word his background issues and filled out applications with confidence.

Outcomes & Benefits

Long was hired at Atlas Logistics for 40 hours a week. Furthermore, Long and his fiancee are expecting their first child soon. This is great closure for a young man moving forward instead of dwelling on the past.
