Finding a job was starting to get really difficult. I had been out of work for such a long time. I needed a chance for a new life, but nobody was giving me the opportunity. I was financially broke, my confidence was lacking and in general I was really struggling. During my employment at the Bean Project, the staff referred me to Smiles for Success to receive major dental work, which helped my self-confidence as I began building my resume and interviewing for jobs.
Thanks to the Bean Project – I am back on my own two feet, have my self-confidence back and have been employed with the same job for over a year since graduating – and received a few promotions! I love my job in the hospitality industry and am so thankful that the Bean Project gave me an opportunity to start a new life.
