A couple came into the shelter, without employment and expecting a child in just a few months. After settling in, they received case management, employment services, nutrition services, and financial literacy. Through employment services, both husband and wife were given information on obtaining more lucrative employment opportunities. The wife received assistance getting her certified nurse assistant license transferred from another state. While waiting for her license, she found employment with Timewise making $10.50 an hour for 40 hours per week. This temporary position was quickly substituted for a position with Focused Care as a CNA, making $15.00 an hour for 40 hours per week. The husband is now looking into other opportunities for employment that he never thought possible. He will be working with GradCafe, intending to obtain an accounting degree. For now, he will continue working with Luby’s as a Certified Chef making $12.00 an hour for 30-40 hours per week.
