"When my employer of almost 30 years closed, I felt as though my world had turned upside down, and I did not know what direction to go. WIOA provided me the opportunity to better myself. I have been able to go back into the workfirce with pride and newly acquired skills and knowledge. I would not have been able to accomplish this goal without the helps and support of WIOA and their wonderful staff."
