Meet Christy

Workforce Challenge

Christy, a recently divorced mother of two, found herself facing a lot of challenges. While married, she had been a stay-at-home mom while her husband was the sole provider for the family. After losing her only source of income, she knew she needed to go back to school in order to be able to obtain full time employment and take care of herself and her children. She was referred to the Arkansas Workforce Center in Harrison.

Christy was enrolled in the Dislocated Worker Program as a displaced homemaker. She applied for a scholarship from WIA and started the following semester in the Business Technology Program at the local college.

Outcomes & Benefits

Christy completed her degree in Business Technology and is currently employed with the local hospital in the Marketing Department where she is doing a great job. Congratulations, Christy!
