Claudia Brito Finds a Job that Fits

July 19, 2019

“This job is everything I could have asked for. I can pay all my bills and still have time to spend with my family. Way Finders prepared me for this job and I intend to keep it.”


Claudia is a single mother of two children who struggled to find a stable job that paid the bills AND left time to take care for her family. In 2018 she received stabilization funds to move from shelter into her own apartment. During this time she was working part-time as a Certified Nursing Assistant, however, the stabilization funds and her part-time wages were not enough to sustain her apartment and family long term – she knew she needed a full-time job.

Claudia was referred to Way Finders’ Employment Support Services program where she worked with staff to develop her resume, attend job training classes, learn interview skills, and prepare her for her job search. Shortly after, we referred Claudia to our long standing partner, United Personnel, who linked her with a job opportunity with Freedom Credit Union as a temporary receptionist.

Three months later, Freedom Credit Union offered Claudia a full-time position. She eagerly accepted and is now feeling increasingly stable in her new job. She was trained to be successful and her hard work shows through the words of her supervisors who say, “We couldn’t be happier with Claudia’s performance. She is the face of Freedom Credit Union, the first person people see when they walk in our doors. Knowing that Way Finders trained someone who was such a perfect fit, shows us that they would be a great resource of candidates for open positions in the future.”
