Betty: Moving Forward


After being unemployed for nearly three and a half years, Betty visited a local food bank in search of prayer. In addition to finding prayer, Betty was introduced to a Jobs for Life instructor who recommended she look into the program. Betty was blown away by how she saw dignity restored in her life as well as the lives of her classmates. She is thankful for Jobs for Life and the blessing it has been. “It’s fulfilling to complete things and see progress. I feel like I’ve accomplished something and am able to move forward.” Betty is encouraged that Jobs for Life was the perfect place for her to go when she was doubting and unsure of her future. Upon graduating from Jobs for Life, Betty became employed and quickly realized that people cared deeply about her at her new job. Betty said she now feels a sense of self-worth and a new confidence that she is valued at her job.
