When we first met Ezra, he had fallen on bad times, lost his apartment, did not have a job, and was living in a homeless shelter. During the intake, our recruiter learned that Ezra had a welder’s certification and a plumbing apprentice certification.
We provided Ezra with bus passes and served as a liaison between Ezra and H & G Systems. We set up an interview for him and he was hired full-time as a welder making $22.00 an hour. Ezra is no longer living in a homeless shelter. He now has his own apartment and is saving to buy a car. His employer is also providing him with additional training which could lead to a possible promotion and more pay.
