Dennis was a homeless veteran who needed help finding a job and putting a roof over his head.

The Workforce Investment Board helped Dennis by referring him to a transitional housing program. He also qualified for a grant for vocational training and received assistance for transportation. Dennis is now working as a commercial driver earning $17 per hour.

“The program helped me to stay focused,” Dennis said.  “Without the transportation assistance, I would not have been able to complete the training.”
