STORY OF AN ACHIEVER
Timothy participated in Towards Employment’s pre-release career readiness programming while finishing up a sentence in the County jail.
Right before his release from County Jail, Timothy’s home was destroyed in an apartment fire. Despite this devastating set back, Timothy enrolled in a job readiness workshop with a goal to get to work. Workshop provided much needed structure and support; and he felt that this discipline helped him to be persistent and efficient – and ready for work. “Following these steps gave me something to keep me on track working towards my goals.”
Being employed has helped strengthen his family. “I want to bring structure and stability to my kids’ lives and set an example for them…if you work hard you can achieve anything.” Achieve connects hard workers like Timothy with Cleveland’s employers. And BOTH achieve their goals.
