Could You Share your Most Difficult Moments?Hoff Headshot

A message from Executive Director Julie Hoff

It's hard to talk about difficult moments in our lives... even if they have a happy ending. To volunteer to share them in front of more than 200 people is especially hard, but many of Daily Work's job seekers are willing to do just that. In the words of one of them, here's why:
I am willing to talk to you today because I am so grateful for how Daily Work has helped me find not just a job, but also... to believe in myself again. When I first came to Daily Work I felt completely degraded and defeated. I didn't think I had any strength left, but somehow, as a survival instinct, I got here.

 It is both humbling and inspiring that so many job seekers are willing to share their powerful stories with our community. We share those stories on our blog, our Facebook page, and live and in-person at our Steps to Success luncheon. The May 13 Steps to Success Luncheon will showcase the real progress that Daily Work's job seekers are making towards accomplishing their career and life goals. We will also share how each job seeker's gains create positive outcomes for their families and local communities, too. We hope you will join us to hear first-hand the life-changing impact of your contributions.

Driven to Make a Difference

By Marah Secret Johnson, Case Management Intern

When I finally came to the United States in 2005, I could barely read or write, but because of my age they had to place me in a class where all the other kids knew how to read and write. I had to take ESL classes in middle school. But in high school, I saw my dreams becoming reality. Read More
