Meet Charissa

Workforce Challenge

Charissa came to the Workforce Center to turbo-boost her job search. With her Bachelor’s degree and a desire to work, she hadn’t identified opportunities in her areas of interest. Also, her specific needs in terms of hours, workspace, and contact with others offered a challenge to some employers.

Workforce Solution

She successfully applied for the ReHire Colorado internship program, and that’s when her momentum picked up. The internship coordinator worked with Healing Warriors to offer Charissa an internship, fully funded by the Workforce Center, that utilized her skills and recognized her needs. The local nonprofit was a job site empathetic to providing accommodations to their clientele and staff.

Outcomes & Benefits

After a successful internship, Healing Warriors, which serves area military veterans, was able to offer Charissa an employment contract. Realizing that they could not do without her administrative and accounting skills, they raised adequate funds to offer Charissa a full-time position. Charissa says she couldn’t be happier with her employment and the opportunities she’s been given to grow and heal. Her site supervisor stated that Charissa “always works from integrity and doing the right things."
