Julie came to the CAF in June 2, 2017. She had fallen on hard times and was looking for a new option. Due to her persistent attitude regarding completion of the Work Readiness classes, she was offered an opportunity to be considered for an apprenticeship with GOODWILL Industries in the Bistro, due to her culinary background. From the first day, Julie never missed a day nor was she ever late. Her excellent work ethic was noticed by higher management and they spoke to Mike Foster about hiring her to work for Goodwill as a Full-time employee. Since then she has risen to assistant manager with a raise and is now about to be promoted again to run a food stand at all the Goodwill
locations. Her consistency and “Never Give Up” personality has resulted in her having her own house, a place to finally call Home.
