American Job Center, Jefferson County

Meet Elizabeth

Workforce Challenge

The challenge that brought Elizabeth to the American Job Center was that her family had always been in poverty. They've never had enough money for anything.

Workforce Solution

WIOA provided multiple solutions for Elizabeth. She took classes that taught her a lot about financial issues and communication. They have provided her with gas vouchers to get to and from school. The the best opportunity, though, was they paid for her to go to school to learn medical assisting. Now she has a chance to get out of poverty, something she says she would have never been able to do on her own.

Outcomes & Benefits

Elizabeth is now a medical assistant. She says, "The outcome of all of this has been great. My caseworker has done so much for me that I can never repay her for. I am now a medical assistant and much better off than I think I would have been if I hadn't come to the American Job Center."
