At Goodwill’s First-To-Work Program in West Oahu, I received the tools necessary for me to obtain and maintain secure employment. I was struggling to find work as a single mother of two. I had never worked in the United States before and did not know where to start. Goodwill helped me find the courage to start applying and interviewing for jobs by teaching me the process of what I needed to do to get a job. At first, I was hesitant to be on my own, but now I know that I can always find the support I need at Goodwill. Thanks to Goodwill, I am now working and able to take care of my two children.
