Meet Debra

Workforce Challenge

As a homeless veteran, Debra was relocated to Adelanto for transitional housing with Life Community. She needed employment and permanent housing.

Workforce Solution

Life Community referred Debra to the Workforce Investment Board for job search assistance. She was assigned a case manager, who assisted her with gas cards, clothing vouchers and enrollment in various workshops, teaching skills in job searching, building referral networks and computers. She was also provided with additional job search assistance, resume preparation and supportive services.

Outcomes & Benefits

Debra was offered a job as a part-time sales associate with Walmart, and she is now training to become a full-time employee. Debra is grateful for the opportunity to get back on her feet, saying, “I have a job that I can feel good about and I will finally be able to get an apartment.”
