From Homeless to a Home

Gabe came to Goodwill Omaha’s Employment Solutions program when he was homeless. “It was a very humbling experience,” said Gabe, thinking back to that time. “I don’t ever want to do that again.”

One of the many challenges faced by individuals living without a permanent residence is the inability to list an address on job applications. Similarly, tasks such as creating a resume and finding job openings turn into major hurdles for people who do not have computer capabilities or access to the internet. Employment Solutions is there for anyone who needs assistance finding meaningful, long-term employment.

While Employment Solutions participants may end up working in many sectors of the Omaha community, Gabe landed on his feet with a job at Goodwill Omaha. He continues to take courses from Employment Solutions to build gain skills for a changing world.
