Cases of COVID-19 are rising. The folks CPARC supports are especially vulnerable.
We need your support now – more than ever.
Evan is the first to tell you that he’s had enough of COVID-19. “I miss getting out of the house,” he sighs.
Like many of us, Evan misses his family. He’s been able to connect virtually, but it’s just not the same.
“But, what I really miss is Reba,” he frowns. A Reba McEntire fan, Evan was set to meet his music icon until the concert was canceled.
Unfortunately, Evan’s challenges did not stop there.
Stay-at-home orders kept Evan from work for months. When the orders lifted, he was unable to return to his job (where he’d been for 17 years) due to pandemic related restrictions.
It’s hard to imagine where to start the process of finding a new job…especially in the middle of a global pandemic!
Evan needed help.
He met a job coach at our Center for Industrial Training. Together, they updated his resume, explored job opportunities, and practiced interview skills.
Evan found a new job and is thriving in it – something he could never have imagined a year ago!
“A lot of things are different,” Evan says. “But I like it.”
Because of your ongoing support, Evan got the help he needed.
You were there when life changed for Evan.
Because of supporters like you, our folks will receive the individualized support that they need to thrive, both during the pandemic and after.
You will provide safety and stability at a time when our folks need it most.
