Jeff's New Purpose

  Jeff knew he would face some tough challenges in his job search. Last October, he was unexpectedly laid off after eight years as a warehouse laborer. Before that, he worked in construction.
   “Physically, I knew I couldn’t do that kind of work anymore,” said Jeff, who is in his late 50s.
   Today, Jeff is working as a human services representative with Hennepin County, and he has a whole new sense of purpose.
