When Zulma enrolled in Mi Casa’s career training program, she was in the midst of the most difficult period of her life. A high-risk pregnancy forced her to leave her job and her partner was without work for months. Zulma feared she and her family of four – soon to be five – would fall behind on rent and lose their home.
Zulma enrolled in a career training program at Mi Casa where she sharpened her skills and learned strategies for an effective job search. At a networking event organized by Mi Casa, Zulma met the director of the Mile High United Way 2-1-1 call center, which had a position open. Fast forward a few weeks and three interviews later, Zulma is now employed full-time at Mile High United Way.
“I guess I knew deep down that I am capable of doing many things, I just didn’t always think it would be possible for me. At Mi Casa, they give you the right tools to succeed and be self-sufficient.”
