It's been a great couple of weeks here at The Stewpot! One of our programs, STEP, focuses on job readiness - resumes, job searches, conflict resolution skills, etc. STEP last 3 months and is coordinated by our casework services team. Our most recent class started in August. Five participants were enrolled and in less than a month 3 have full time jobs and one more has a call back! We are ecstatic for those who are back to work. Employement (specifically for those with criminal backgrounds) is a tough part of the journey out of homelessness, but these success stories show that it's not impossible. With the hardwork of the participants and encouragement from their caseworker, Cindy Bailey, things are looking up! And we couldn't be happier for them.
