Moses LAke Success Stories
A Changed life And a bright future
On December 6th, 2019, Danny completed substance abuse treatment with the determination he would stay clean, become a better person and that he and his family would never sleep in their car again! In January of 2020, he met with Silvie, Program Director at Compass, and completed an intake for the WorkFirst Community Jobs Program.
Excited to Work Hard and Continue Learning!
Robert has been working at his local ACE Hardware for over 18 years, and he is just as excited to go to work and interact with his coworkers as he was when he first started. He never misses a day of work and you can always find him working hard, completing all of his tasks for the day, and even allowing some time at the end of his shift to learn a new task.
a better Life for his family!
My name is Volodymyr and my family moved here from Ukraine a few years ago. We did not speak English or know how to find work in America. My wife, Maria, and I were referred to the Workfirst program and Silvie, the Compass Program Director, helped us enroll in ESL classes and get placed at a host worksite to gain experience.
A job that is a perfect fit!
Kailee is a young lady who has grown up in Moses Lake and graduated in 2021. She is very cheerful and always smiling, and can light up the room with her bubbly personality!
A lasting change
Hello, I am Kodi. I was referred from DSHS to the Community Job Program about seven years ago. I completed my intake assessment with Silvie from Compass Career Solutions; he assisted me in my Individual Development Plan along with a referral to the Life Skills workshop facilitated by Compass.
Hello, I am Kenneth and I go by Ken or Kenny. Brenda from Compass Career Solutions helped me start volunteering at the animal shelter. Unfortunately, the pandemic hit, and I had to take a break from volunteering.
