Workforce Challenge

Marian came to Michigan Works! as an unemployed, single parent with two children. She was referred by DHHS and began working with Michigan Works! Case Manager Michelle.

Workforce Solution

With Michelle’s help, Marian was able to receive mileage assistance to and from her job search locations, assistance with her resume, and help with purchasing appropriate work clothing. “In July I became unemployed for the first time in years,” said Marian. “Not knowing which way to go or where to turn to, I went and filed for state assistance, which led me to the Michigan Works! office in Lincoln. There I met an amazing person, Michelle Burns, who got me started on the PATH program. Within two weeks I started a new job!”

Outcomes & Benefits

After working with Michelle, Marian was very happy to obtain full-time employment in her home county working at Kris Mart. Marian said, “Thank you to Michelle for her guidance and support, and thank you for putting in place programs to help me and my children continue to grow.”
