Bob dreamed of finding a supportive, welcoming, and positive workplace that he could call home. Without a job or car, starting a job search was proving tricky.
Thankfully, Bob’s job search team came to him when he stumbled upon a presentation in the Friendship Corner at NAMI in Fond du Lac.
Bob discovered the wonderful opportunities and services available in our FoodShare Employment Training (FSET) program and quickly enrolled. Next thing he knew, Bob met his friendly new Case Manager, Angel.
Angel got to know Bob before jumping into a job search. They talked about his hopes, needs, and situation, so she could connect him with the best possible resources. The first connection was our Job Developer, Heather, who had the network to make Bob’s dream a reality.
Bob, Angel, and Heather met weekly to walk through his job search. They set clear and achievable goals each week, keeping Bob’s dream at the forefront. Bob also attended a Career Connections Class where to enhance his skills. He loved learning new ways to use his skills to become a great candidate.
Soon after graduation, Bob found a part-time Food Service position at St. Francis Home. He is the beacon of positivity and light to every person he encounters there. Bob continues to do his best every day, hoping to help others like himself and eventually find a home of his own.
Bob is proud of what he has accomplished and wears a big, beautiful smile. “He never gave up, despite what obstacles were presented. We are proud of all that Bob has accomplished. He was so delightful to work with,” says Angel.
Congratulations, Bob! Your positive attitude is an inspiration to us all!
