Meet Nichole

Workforce Challenge

Nichole is a single mom using CCAP, Section 8 housing and food stamps to help her get by. She wanted a career to enable her to support her children and herself. She had completed prerequisites for the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) program and needed financial assistance to enroll in the LPN program. She was working about 10 hrs a week as a CNA.

Workforce Solution

Nichole was granted a WIOA scholarship to attend LPN school. She also received a Pell Grant.

Outcomes & Benefits

Nichole graduated from LPN school with honors and obtained full time employment almost immediately as an LPN earning 62% more than she did as a CNA. She is able to support her family now, no longer needs food stamps, and will eventually be off Section 8 housing.
