Meet Adnan

Workforce Challenge

Recently released from prison with three felony convictions, Adnan was unable to secure employment. He was also living at a homeless shelter with his fiancé and her four children without money and transportation.

Workforce Solution

Through the San Bernardino County Probation Department, Adnan learned about the Workforce Investment Board (WIB). He was enrolled in the on-the-job training (OJT) program, which placed him with Hoodz. In addition to the training and up until he received his first paycheck, he also received transportation help to get to and from work.

Outcomes & Benefits

Today, Adnan is happy to report that he is currently employed by Hoodz of the High Desert as a technician. He looks forward to moving out of the homeless shelter with his family in the near future. He expressed gratitude for WIB services that helped him turn his life around.
