“I’m back in the workforce, back contributing to society again… It feels good. I’m proud of the person that I am today.”

Marci had been out of the job market for a while and was looking for a fresh start. She heard that Project Place helped people with workforce training and housing. She decided to come see for herself.

Marci graduated from Project Place’s Work Ready program and meets with her case manager on a regular basis. Marci worked at Working Opportunities for Women (WOW), where she learned production, assembly, ordering, sales and marketing skills. During this time, Marci was taking steps to secure her future with the support of the Project Place team. Now, Marci utilizes the skills she learned at WOW in her new job, fulfilling orders at a company that makes security products. She has also found her own apartment.
