A recently separated mother of two young girls came to the Career & Life Transitions Center. Though struggling financially, she was ineligible for food stamps. Without the extra cushion provided by such benefits as Child Support and Rental Assistance, she lived by borrowing against her credit. She has a business degree and decided that she needed a career change and further schooling because she could not afford the commute back and forth to New York City for her job as a single parent.
When she became a client of the Career & Life Transitions Center, she visited with the Case Manager and the Career Training Advisor. The Center provided letters for her to receive a tuition scholarship to attend the Warren County Community College Certified Bookkeeping course. As she had not yet found a job when she completed this training, she decided to attend the Computer Training class at the Center, which includes Online Job Searching and Job-Readiness Training. She had almost completed the Computer Training when she happily learned she was hired full time in a local township office.
