GES helps transition people off public assistance and into jobs

April SmithCongratulations to Anita Dixon on her new job!

Anita came to the Goodwill Easterseals JOBS Program after her child’s caregiver became ill. She was not able to maintain employment and found herself on TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families). April needed a job, and she needed it soon in order to take care of herself and her child.

Our Job Readiness and Placement program accepts referrals from case managers at the Mobile County Department of Human Resources with the goal of transitioning TANF recipients off of public assistance and into jobs. Funded by the Alabama Department of Post Secondary Education, this program provides services for people like Anita who are hoping to build a career plan and learn valuable skills that will lead them down the path to success. Anita completed our program and is once again a full-time employee at a restaurant. We are so proud of you, Anita!
