Meet Abraham

Workforce Challenge

Abraham had been laid off and couldn't find suitable employment. He is a single father, a veteran on 50% disability and has a felony on his record. He needed stable employment with a good income to support his son and himself. Plus, he was also assisting his ex-wife financially.

Workforce Solution

Abraham had only one year left to complete his associate's degree in Computer Information. He was approved for a WIOA DW scholarship to assist him in completing his education. He was also able to use a Pell Grant and a partial amount from his GI Bill.

Outcomes & Benefits

Abraham graduated with high grades and received his AAS in Computer Information. Abraham was hired full time as a computer technician with a good salary and benefits. He stated had it not been for the WIOA program, he never would have been able to afford the entire tuition to complete his degree. He is doing well and loves his job.
