Meet Rene

Workforce Challenge

Rene was an unemployed veteran looking for assistance in finding employment or training. Through a referral from our LCWC Veteran staff, Renee was enrolled in our Rehire Internship program.

Workforce Solution

When Rene met with his Rehire coordinator, he spoke of his IT background and work experiences. Rene was placed at a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) site - The Growing Project. Rene has become a renaissance man at The Growing Project. He repaired the tractors, was able to get their solar panels up and running, corrected their IT issues and worked the land as he once dreamed of doing. He was recently put in charge of reaching out to veterans' groups to share The Growing Project's bounty and story.

Outcomes & Benefits

Rene says "Rehire saved my life." The counseling and reality checks helped him move forward. For the first time since high school, Rene is interacting successfully with diverse age groups. "This experience opened me up and has been a high point in my life."
