Heather has made significant progress this month, and I am so proud of her. Her first big step was participating in our retail training program.  She hasn’t missed a day, has a great attitude, and is impressing others (and herself!) with her progress and success so far. She also attended a hiring event this past weekend with me where she was able to set up an interview with Target for early November. Heather has taken a huge leap of faith and has gone outside of her comfort zone accomplishing more in the past four weeks than she has in the past four years. I can’t think of a better person to be the client of the month.” — Alyssa Arends, Career Specialist
