Meet Belky

Workforce Challenge

As a single mother receiving public assistance, Belky had a large gap in her work history because she returned to school. However, she didn't obtain a degree and now, couldn't find work because she didn't finish and had been absent from the workforce for several years.

Workforce Solution

The WDB provided Belky with job leads and opportunities to network with employers.

Outcomes & Benefits

During one of the networking sessions, Belky was offered full-time employment as a 211 Community Resource Advisor for the United Way. She is now off public assistance and can provide for herself and her daughter. She says, “I aim to move up within United Way to improve our future. I want to thank everyone at the AJCC-West Valley because without your resources and encouragement on a personal level I wouldn’t be where I am now.”
