On November 18, 2012, Simone Colbert came to visit Restoration for the first time with a number of items she wanted to work on. She was interested in a benefits screening, wanted to apply for Child Care and Food Stamps, and was looking for work. On her first visit with our case manager Ms. Iris Blackman, Ms. Colbert came fully prepared and brought all of the necessary documentation to process her application in no time at all.This allowed her to enroll in Food Stamps and also receive the Child Care she needed in order to get back to work. That same day she made an appointment to sit with our Job Developer, Mr. Willie Sanchez. After meeting with Mr. Sanchez she was sent out to an interview. Ms. Colbert was so focused on finding employment, that after her initial interview, she walked into another business on her own and was hired on the spot. All of this was accomplished within a week and only because Ms. Colbert was so focused and dedicated to get things done -- a true success and an example for us all.
