Meet Emily

Workforce Challenge

When Emily first came to the WFC, she was married with four children and attended Red Rocks Community College, earning her Associate's Degree in Radiology Technician. As Emily was meeting with WIOA case manager, Emily reported that she is now going through a divorce and was worried about how she was going to survive. Emily decided to apply for food stamps and TANF to help sustain her while completing her degree. Emily was in need of tuition assistance to complete her degree.

Workforce Solution

Emily came in to the WFC after being referred by RRCC for help with tuition assistance to complete the last year of her degree. Emily was guided to the WIOA program to help with tuition assistance. WIOA assessed Emily to ensure that this field/profession was truly her desire. Emily assured CM that this was exactly what she'd like to do and the schedule worked great with her children. WIOA approved Emily for a scholarship to help her complete and obtain her associates degree.

Outcomes & Benefits

Emily was able to continue with her degree and complete her training. Emily is now working at Good Samaritan Medical Center as a Radiology Technician.
