Workforce Challenge

Tasha, a single mom with three kids, was referred to Michigan Works! via the PATH program. She started working at Applebee's the same week she attended PATH orientation.

Workforce Solution

Tasha ended up working on average 27 hours a week at Applebee's, but she still needed transportation help to get to and from work, as her car needed over $1,300 in repairs. Michigan Works! was able to provide Tasha with mileage reimbursement, as well as help her purchase a new car for $2,000.

Outcomes & Benefits

Tasha was able to find a job that helped support her and get her back on her feet, while Michigan Works! assisted her with reliable transportation. Tasha says thankfully, "Michigan Works! helped me to get back on my feet when I had no other options. I am so grateful for them.”
