Damon’s Story

Despite Damon’s battle with Crohn’s Disease, he desperately wanted to work to make a better life for himself. With zero access to a phone, internet, or email, no running water or electricity and no transportation, Damon did not know where to begin. He reached out to Goodwill for help. Goodwill’s Job Placement Specialist met with Damon once a week at a grocery store within one mile of his home, helping with resume writing, interviewing skills and applying for jobs. Several months later, Damon’s new future took shape as he secured a job in the warehouse of a local business within walking distance from his home. He has since opened his own bank account and now has a working telephone, water and electricity. His path ahead is much brighter thanks to his persistence and determination to find employment with the help of Goodwill.
