Chavon came to the TIE (Transition to Independence & Employment) Program unsure of herself and her future. Without a job and with a small child, Chavon was eager to better her situation, working hard to improve her interview and job search skill and build her confidence. Through the help of her job placement counselor, Chavon eventually landed a job in one of Goodwill’s retail stores, where she still works today.
She continues to impress her supervisors and is admired by her teammates for her hard work and dedication. “I was able to take the skills I learned in the TIE program and use them right away. I’m more confident now. I’ve even moved into my own apartment and I’m getting my driver’s license.”
