Meet Sonia

Workforce Challenge

Sonia is a homemaker with children and has never worked. She doesn't have any kind of work experience.

Workforce Solution

We set Sonia up to do workfare hours at the ARC, as we do for customers receiving food assistance. This helps individuals not only gain experience, but also helps them network and hopefully get noticed and gain employment either at the place they are volunteering or somewhere else.
Sonia went to the ARC thrift store for the very first time to perform her initial volunteer hours. She was only 4 hours in to her work day when one of the managers approached her & advised her to fill out an application to work at that ARC thrift store. So she took her lunch break & filled out the application as advised.

Outcomes & Benefits

The manager approached her again at the end of that work day & brought her in to his office for an interview and then offered her a position!
She graciously accepted the job offer & is now a full time employee at the ARC Thrift store in Broomfield!
