Jessica's Story

Jessica first joined the ES Program in 2018. She was living with family and sharing a room with her three small children. Jessica was working part-time cleaning homes privately but this was not always reliable. As a single mother she was the sole provider for herself and her children. Jessica faced challenging times while enrolled in the program, but they ultimately gave her the push that she needed. She worked with her coach to find a job at the County which soon would turned into a full-time position in Housekeeping. She has since moved into her own apartment. Her plans for the future include purchasing a home and returning to school to further her education to continue to increase her opportunites.
