OAR Client Success Stories 

successOur new client, "Matt," came to the Work Empowerment Program (WEP) orientation workshop in January. He told us that felt inspired after leaving the workshop, and while still wearing the dress shirt and tie that he wore to Orientation earlier that day, he approached the manager of a restaurant where he had stopped for lunch.  Matt explained that he used some of the techniques outlined in the WEP orientation and convinced the manager to hire him on the spot.

"Steve," a client that OAR has been actively working with since last summer, secured a position at a commercial cleaning company in the area. Though Steve said he continues to look for a permanent home and a car, he feels blessed to have a job and thanks OAR staff for helping him.

"Randy" stopped by the office this month and told staff he had landed a position with a telecommunications contractor and is a new sales associate going through a paid training program.  During his visit, he shared that he learned a lot from the two Work Empowerment Program workshops and applied OAR’s interviewing tips.  He also commented that the resume he  developed with his case manager's help was what got him in the door for the interview.

The manager at pizza chain shop called to tell us he is extremely pleased to report that both "Kevin" and "Jerry" are excellent employees and great men.  He expects each of them to continue with the chain long term.
