“In high school I knew that I wanted to be in the medical field, but didn’t want to go through years of school. I am so thankful to have been blessed by Ms. Debra and the Charlotte Area Fund with the opportunity to get dental training. I really like that I can continue to help heal people.

When Mejih learned about CAF from a resource fair at the Men’s Shelter, he was excited to work towards his goal of home ownership. Support from his case manager enabled him to get training, purchase a car, find work as a welder and move into his own apartment.

When Julie fell on hard times, CAF enrolled her in workforce readiness classes, then helped her find a culinary apprenticeship at Goodwill Industries. Julie’s ‘can do’ attitude resulted in a full-time position with Goodwill and a home of her own.
