A Client's trust allows Compass to be his guide in the right direction
I came to Compass Career Solutions in November of 2018. I heard about their employment program from my mental health counselor and decided to drop in on my way home from that appointment to see what they were all about. What I found at the Kelso office initially almost convinced me to abandon my plans.
We have not let this time slow Us down
Anxiety, depression, coldness, hunger, fear, and hopelessness. These are many of the feelings that the homeless and unemployed have felt on an everyday basis. Due to COVID-19, many more can now relate to the experiences of our homeless and unemployed. Here at Compass, we have had the great opportunity to continue to serve those in need of housing and employment through our case management supports.
MEET EDDIE: FROM UNEMPLOYED TO JOB FULFILLMENT
Eddie started working with Compass in March of 2018. He was one of our first clients in our FCS program. We initially spent much of our time working through the process of discovery skill assessments, as Eddie was seeking his first real job. “I tried looking for a job on my own, but it didn’t go very well”, said Eddie.
A PROGRAM THAT NEVER STOPPED BELIEVING IN THEIR CLIENT'S DREAM AND POTENTIAL
Compass Career Solutions LLC Kelso would like to introduce everyone to an amazing individual, Jeff. Jeff’s story starts several years ago when he decided that he wanted more for himself and his family. Jeff got the courage to go back to school and earn his high school diploma.
Celebrating 30 Years of Continuous Employment
For over 30 years Jeff woke up bright and early to complete his shift at Cap’n Yoby’s in Kelso Washington every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Jeff’s typical day would start by meeting his job coach from Compass Career Solutions and clocking in. Jeff would then gather his cleaning materials and off he went.
