“I’ve learned to be patient and not give up on myself. I also learned how to write up a resume, dress right for a job interview, how to prepare for a job interview, and how to act on a job interview. I learned all that stuff. EAC has prepared me for work and an opportunity to go to school an make something out of myself. I am so happy that there is a program like this cause it brought me back to life and gave me something to live for.” -A.D.
“My family had no faith in the person I had become; I was losing my wife and my son. I saw myself as a broken man, unable to see the damage I had done to myself and to my family. One of the opportunities offered to me was the Just for Dads program. I knew that all I wanted was to be a great, responsible father. Just for Dads staff connected me with the Green Jobs Corps training program which prepared me for the field that I am now working in. My life was completely changed when I realized that the EAC staff actually cared about where I was headed. It was wonderful to feel the positivity and support the EAC staff offered. I am getting myself and my family back. I couldn’t imagine where I would be if it hadn’t been for this program.” – V.C.
