Workforce Challenge

A stay-at-home mother of three, Marikate decided to advance her career by pursuing a Licensed Vocational Nurse certificate (LVN). While enrolled in the program, she couldn't afford the testing fees and was at a standstill.

Workforce Solution

The WDB provided Marikate with funds to take the test, as well as, funds to help travel to follow-up appointments.

Outcomes & Benefits

Marikate is currently employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse with Maxim Health, which provides hospitals with nurses to run flu shot clinics. She says, "I am so grateful for the support that was provided. Thank you so much for the generosity and for helping me reach my goals."
