When I first heard about FIT I was on parole in a halfway house called the Freedom House. I was unemployed and fresh out of prison. I did not know what I was going to do but I needed to figure something out fast. I had no real skills and my job history was not the best. I went down to FIT to see if they could help me or at least point me in the right direction. They could, as soon as I walked in everyone was real nice and very helpful. They told me about all kinds of job training programs and classes. I went through their job readiness and resume classes then I was assigned my Case Manager, who was awesome, I could tell she actually wanted to help me. Once I had my Case Manager, she showed me a list of licenses, certifications and job training that FIT pays for. CDL. So I chose to go to training to get my CDL Class A license. FIT then helped me find a truck driving school and gave me bus passes so I could get there. I finished school and got my CDL.
I have now been driving semi-trucks for the last year. I have my own apartment and I even bought a new car. I get to stand on my own two feet today and take care of my family. FIT is amazing, they helped me get to where I am now. I came a long way from a prison cell.
Thank you Rosa
Before I came to FIT I was working a dead end security job, which almost landed me homeless. I took the Warehouse Logistics class at FIT and then landed a job at a furniture store assembling and delivering furniture. I'm doing good and I'm proud of myself. I'm continuing to climb and move forward in life, because I want more for myself.
I thank God and the FIT program.
I discovered FIT through the internet. When I met my case manager for the first time, she was so helpful. I am very happy and fortunate to have come across this organization that helped my dream of becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant come true. I love what I do! I finally have a certificate that will help me get a job and be independent. FIT opened the door for me and my nursing career.
