Sam came to Goodwill looking for help with finding a better paying job to help him provide for his six children and had several barriers including reinstatement fees preventing him from accomplishing that goal. Reentry Navigator Christopher Fincher started working with Sam right away knocking down barriers and was able to help Sam find gainful employment. Sam now credits Goodwill for helping him provide for his family and looks forward to when he can give back to the community for support he received. Congrats to both Sam and Christopher on job well done!
