Michael’s Story

Michael, age 42, grew up in the projects of West Dallas and suffers from schizophrenia. One of seven children, he spent most of his childhood caring for his siblings. Upon coming to Goodwill in 2017, Michael had not held a job within the last 10 years. Goodwill’s Computer Literacy Program helped Michael to stand out amongst the work applicants improving his professional attire, building a professional resume and preparing with mock interviews. Michael recently accepted a position as a Customer Service Representative.
